Heartwarming | by Jay

One of the common themes in sports is redemption, and there are always a few stories along those lines playing out while a team is getting ready for its season. There's the crusty vet trying to come back from injury, the kid who made some bad decisions and has to work his way out of the doghouse, the one-time phenom whose career was derailed for whatever reason and now has one last shot. This year's ND team has a healthy sprinkling of all of those storylines, and none more inspiring than Travis Leitko's, which both the SBT and the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette highlighted.
