Ifo Ekpre-Olomu Posts Heartfelt Thank You Video To Fans For Support After Tearing ACL

Earlier this week, Oregon star cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu tore his ACL during practice, just weeks before his team was scheduled to play against Florida State in the Rose Bowl. While there is obviously no good time for a serious injury, the fact that Ekpre-Olomu is going to miss the College Football Playoff is especially painful.

Friday night, the senior defensive back posted a heartfelt video to thank fans for supporting him through the injury. While he keeps it together for most of the clip, he does get choked up a little when first announcing that he won't be able to play in the Playoff. He says that he'll be with the team "in spirt", however.

Let's hope Ekpre-Olomu recovers quickly and returns to the field at full-strength.
