McKenzie Milton is upbeat and doing rehab and he’s aiming at trying to make it back on the field by 2020, according to recent articles on OrlandoSentinel.com.
Milton, the UCF quarterback and former Mililani star, is recovering from a devastating knee injury suffered on a hit in a game against South Florida last November.
Milton describes his thoughts about the actual injury and what he has been doing since. God and his faith have been a big part of his recovery so far and he describes some of what he believes are God’s works that have helped him get through thus far.
The injury was so bad, it was feared Milton would lose his leg. Fortunately, with the help of some great doctors, blood was restored to his leg successfully and in time to save it.
“That’s what I’m hoping for (2020), but if that’s not in my best-case scenario, if I don’t feel like I’m ready to come back at that point, then I won’t,” Milton said in the Sentinel story. “I’ll take as much time as I need because I want to play at a certain level where I was at or if not better. I feel like I would be doing myself a disservice if I came back and wasn’t completely ready to play. I don’t think that’s smart.”
