We all know the story of Chad Kackert. From 2012 Grey Cup MVP to retired in 2014 after a devastating ankle injury, to Argos Strength and Conditioning Coach and back to the field as a Practice Roster player at the end of 2014. After the first comeback stopped short, it appears that The “Kack Attack” might be closer to his old self than ever before…
In a post on Instagram this past week, Kackert has lopped together three clips.
1. His explosiveness prior to his injury.
2. Footage of his brutal injury. (Disclaimer: Footage is somewhat graphic)
3. His explosiveness now, after off-season rehab.
Check it out for yourself…
After seeing my foot dangle from my ankle, experiencing the perpetual pains, and going through 3 surgeries, I thought I’d be happy to walk normally again. But extreme pain incites an extreme response of either cowardice or courageousness. The truth is, I’ve dealt with both, but thanks to the loving care of those whom surrounded me through my pain, I’ve been able to recover and thrive again. You all know who you are. Your courage became my courage. I will always be grateful, no matter where this road leads. In this video: *Training before the 2012 Grey Cup Season. *The injury on Nov 8, 2013. *Yesterday.
What do you think? Will the Kack Attack be back on a CFL field in 2015?
