Missouri’s Adam Ploudre is this week’s nominee for the 2016 Capital One Orange Bowl-FWAA Courage Award. Ploudre broke both bones in his lower left leg while entering his junior season in high school, in 2011. Some doctors believed he would never play football, much less be able to walk again. The ensuing recovery required seven different surgeries and a 49 week recovery.
