Adversity Leads Arthur Ray to Faith in Football and Life


Arthur Ray is a Chicago native who stands at 6'3" and 300 lbs. He's a former Michigan State lineman who played two seasons at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado after being granted two extra seasons of eligibility by the NCAA in January of 2013. He last played for MSU back in 2011 and is a cancer survivor. 


Ray was once ranked as one of the nation's top offensive guards as apart of Mark Dantonio's first full recruiting class at MSU in 2007. Life hit Ray hard when was diagnosed with cancer in his right tibia during his senior year at Mount Carmel High School in Chicago. 

He beat cancer and has become an example of triumph and resiliency for anyone who hears his story. 

WKAR's Al Martin invited Ray on "Current Sports" this week to talk about his trying journey.
