Former Wisconsin Badger wide receiver Luke Swan was a contestant on Michael Irvin's show 4th & Long, competing for a training-camp spot with the Dallas Cowboys. Swan was booted from the show this week because of a groin injury (his football career has been plagued by injuries). Swan was a member of the Kansas City Chiefs for a brief period in 2008 but was put on waivers without making the final cut. The 6-foot-1 24-year-old had 60 catches for 1,046 yards and 7 TDs in his final two years at Wisconsin. His senior season was cut short due to an injury, but Swan says on his Web site that he was fine with having his football career cut short because it's "God's sovereign will."
He's got a gorgeous, strong body, so he likely has the physical prowess to make a roster in the NFL. But with his injuries and a shortage of college numbers, he will likely be following his heart to a "ministry in Athletes in Action" and not onto the football field Sunday mornings. And if the ministry doesn't work out, we can only hope he'll follow the lead of Paul Donahoe. For now, you can find him on Facebook.
