BOWLING GREEN (WTVG) - The Falcons starting quarterback spent most of the off season thinking he took his last snap as a college quarterback. He had a very serious shoulder injury that happened 13 months ago and he was potentially out of eligibility.
Therefore Darius found a full-time job as a supervisor at a Home Depot near his home in Delaware. He grew up a handy man and worked six days a week. Then his shoulder started to heal faster than anticipated.
Scot Loeffler was his former coach at Boston College and the new head coach needed a quarterback. The NCAA granted Darius a sixth year just two days before Bowling Green opened fall camp.
"Being away from it for that extended period of time showed me how much I missed it," Wade said. He will have his hands full this weekend at Notre Dame.
