Life is full of obstacles. How we answer back from personal adversity is key to how we write the story of our lives.
For Ball State Football's Joel Cox, his story is defined by his second chance.
"Hard work has really paid off me," Cox said. "I know there are a lot of kids out there just as talented as me. It's crazy how evertyhing works out, but it worked out better for me. A door closed, but another opened."
Ball State Sports Link's Josh Blessing and Chris Kosinski have this SL Exclusive on Cox.
