Despite many of the obstacles De'Cody Fagg has had to overcome, he has found himself in a position as one of the go-to targets in the Florida State offense.
Fagg has had the challenge of overcoming not only one but two serious injuries for a football player. His injuries included a left knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery and a broken right leg early in his freshman year. "I use them (his injuries) as motivation and try to prevent them from happening again," Fagg said. As Fagg approaches the field during the remainder of the 2006 season, he knows that he has become a better physical player.
