The center fought through the 2016 with a torn labrum in both of his hips.

During the 2016 season, Florida State center Alec Eberle’s play was a highly debated topic of discussion. However, many had not known that the junior center was playing the entire season with a torn labrum in his right hip, and the game vs. Syracuse including the subsequent games with a torn labrum in his left hip.

Although he was worried his football career might have been over following surgery, Eberle said he’d never felt better once that surgery was completed.

“This is the strongest I’ve ever felt, this is great.”

However, that was well after the mental hardships that come with surgery.

“A couple days after the surgery, I couldn’t really walk good. It took me like a week and a half to start walking again, but knowing I couldn’t walk freaked me out. I started to shut down for a little bit, thinking I’m never going to play football ever again, never going to be able to do anything ever again. I started freaking out.”
