Syracuse Orange quarterback Rex Culpepper is now cancer free. This week, according to College Football Talk, completed his final round of chemotherapy.
Syracuse.com reported Culpepper undergone 100 hours of chemotherapy within the last several months. Yet, despite undergoing chemotherapy, he was able to play in the Orange’s spring game.
Culpepper was battling testicular cancer. When his test came back clean and was cancer free, he was able to ring the hospital’s bell to celebrate that he beat cancer.
He has been receiving treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. Culpepper traveled back and forth to Syracuse, New York.
Culpepper was first diagnosed with cancer in March. He said that the cancer was treatable and he wanted to return to college football after the completion of the treatment.
He completed the treatment in 10-weeks.
Culpepper is expected to backup starter Eric Dungey this season. First, he will have to complete a physical examination to officially be given the clean bill of health, before he is able to return to the team workouts this summer.
Last season, as a freshman, Culpepper appeared in four games. He went 45 of 75 for 518 passing yards. Culpepper also had two touchdowns and three interceptions.
He also had 21 carries for 54 yards.
