NCAA Grants Cancer Survivor, Auburn Tackle Additional Eligibility

The NCAA has granted Shone Coleman, the Auburn University Tackle who survived a battle with Leukemia, a sixth year of eligibility. Coleman returned from his successful fight with cancer last Spring and was eligible to play in the fall, but never made it on the field.

"This is great news for Shon, who has been through a lot medically during the last few years," Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said. “He has been courageous in his fight and we look forward to him returning to the football field."
