Juco G Savage grateful for second chance

Junior college offensive guard Dionte Savage (Yuma, Ariz./Arizona Western CC) has always been a big guy. Coming out of Flint, Mich., in the Class of 2010, numerous colleges were knocking on Savage’s door.

But Savage knew he stood little shot of qualifying academically. No matter how big and strong he was, he knew he didn’t get it done in the classroom and his only option was the junior college route.
