Notre Dame's Grace excited to play after sitting out 2014

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) No one is more excited about playing in the Notre Dame spring game on Saturday than middle linebacker Jarrett Grace.

There was a time when the 6-foot-3, 253-pound graduate student wondered if he'd ever walk normally again, much less play football. Now he is competing for a starting job.

"To me it is all just pure joy and excitement, just to be out there and have that opportunity again," he said. "Trying to soak it all in again because for so long I was just watching these guys play. A lot of them are young so they never had the chance to play with me, so I'm trying to show them the way it needs to be done with effort, excitement, and enthusiasm."
