When University of Akron quarterback DJ Irons suffered 2 debilitating shoulder injuries, a slipped disc and had 2 major surgeries in less than a year, his football career hung in the balance. Today, thanks to lots of hard work and physical therapy, he is back on the field for the home opener as the starting quarterback. DJ had no shortage of support from his teammates and coaches, plus athletic trainers and physical therapists at Akron Children's, the official sports health services provider for Akron Zips Athletics.
