Did anyone who watched last night’s game notice that Alabama’s middle linebacker #42 had a dexcom sensor on his abdomen? I did some research and this player is 1 of 2 on Alabama’s team that has T1D. I couldn’t believe he was playing defense with his sensor on, and exposed! It’s inspirational to see athletes with T1D playing at such a high level.
It just seems like a weird place, but it would probably be even harder to do it on a shoulder or arm.
Here’s an article about him: Keith Holcomb.
I am an alum of University of Alabama! Roll Tide! Do you know who the other player is that has T1D?
