Former Bulls QB Voss fighting to make recovery



Two great stories from Times writers today if you have 10 minutes to spare -- first, Joey Knight caught up with former USF quarterback Alton Voss, revealing a sad story of drug addiction that took him away from college football and have him on the road to recovery in Buenos Aires. USF's had its share of problems getting good quarterbacks and keeping them on campus in the last five years, but it's good to hear that Voss is making progress to take control of his life again.


And here's to a prep football story making 1A of today's Times -- Matt Baker has an uplifting story of Dade City's Mike Larry and all the adversity he's overcome to earn a college scholarship, even at a tiny school in North Dakota. Great, great work on both stories, and certainly worth your time.
