Crazy! Didn't know he had it.
Ted Ginn Sr. didn’t know how stacked the odds were against him surviving. Only after he had beaten pancreatic cancer did the Glenville High School football coach learn that 19 out of 20 don’t .
“They never told me until it was all over,” Ginn said.
Now the coach whose Cleveland school has been a pipeline to Ohio State and so many other college football programs is poised to get back on the sidelines when preseason practice starts.
Ginn, 57, still doesn’t have the energy and endurance he had before he was diagnosed last August. But he is getting stronger physically. His mental resolve has never been greater.
“I’m thankful to be alive and more determined than I ever have been in my life,” he said. “God has blessed me to be here.”
