Austin Proehl's Drive to Return

Austin Proehl’s career as a Tar Heel was supposed to be over. When the senior broke his clavicle against Duke on Sept. 23, he was declared “out for season.” But on Saturday there he was. The decision for Proehl to be able to play in the home finale was made earlier in the week, but the Charlotte native said that he knew the moment he stepped onto the road to recovery.

Turner's Take: Something Bigger

He didn’t have to come back. Austin Proehl could have packed it in and taken it easy, rested for Pro Day or the Combine and gotten ready for the NFL Draft process. He didn’t have to come back, but he did. For his brothers in the locker room. For his brother in Greenville. For the love of the game. For his last game as a Tar Heel. It’s about something bigger.
