-JUSTIN FARGAS RISING AGAIN Aong with Anthony Thomas, Justin Fargas was upposed to push Michigan towards victory in the University backfield this year and for years to come. On November 14, 1998, in the game against the University of Wisconsin, Fargas suffered a leg injury that jeopardized his entire football career. As a tailback for the Wolverines, Fargas broke his right leg during a running play. Both major bones in his leg, his tibia and fibula were fractured. He was rushed to the University Medical Center within hours of his injury in order to realign his bones. Before his injury, Fargas had been an unexpected contributor to the Wolverine running game. However, on his final carry, he was hit for a two-yard loss and his leg buckled beneath him. He was carried off the field in a stretcher with his right leg immobilized. Over spring break of 1998, after the first of several surgeries, Fargas went home to receive a second surgery at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in Valencia, California. Two plates were inserted to replace a metal plate that stabilized the broken tibia and fibula. Fargas had to use crutches for three months before beginning rehabili- tation. Fargas said, " The real first step I took to recuperate was in knowing that everything would be good, and that I would return in the next season. " Fargas did have physical therapy after his surgery, but then another surgery came in the way. According to the Detroit News, Carr said, " He had to have the surgery redone, which eliminated him from playing next year. . .Anytime you lose a player like Justin for the season, that ' s a big loss. " For the 1999 season, Justin had been working directly with trainers in his rehabilitation in order to return for the 2000 season. With the trainers, Fargas participated in football drills with cones that would improve his balance and ability to change direction. This year, Fargas trained and ran with the track team. Although he was injured and sat out the entire season, Fargas remained close to the football team, and attended this year ' s Orange Bowl game in Florida to watch the team snatch a victory over Alabama. Fargas added, " I have been making progress, everything is going well, and I hope to play and contribute to the football team for next season.
