EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) Northwestern quarterback Clayton Thorson got married in June, danced at the wedding and honeymooned in West Palm Beach.
A life-changing and busy offseason also included surgery and rehab. Now, he has his sights set on this: Thorson hopes to play in the opener at Purdue after last season ended with him getting carted off the field with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
"That's always been my goal leading up here," he said. "Thankfully, my doctors are doing everything to get me ready to play. And I'm doing everything I can to play then."
