Campus Champion

Courage on the football field cannot always be measured in wins and losses. John Stephens and Matt Pitcher, like many of their Red Dragon teammates, agreed to have a cotton swab of their saliva submitted to a bone marrow registry. Matches are very rare, but two weeks ago both were contacted for follow-up tests. While Matt awaits further word, John was told his bone marrow may save the life of an infant with acute leukemia. In three weeks, he unselfishly undergoes a painful procedure to share his marrow. In a remarkable 2010 Cortland football season, John’s accomplishment is the one we will remember forever.
