Deju vu for IU’s Altman…

Doug wrote a story today about Indiana special teams player Tyler Altman, who’s father died of brain cancer in May of 2005.

Altman talks about how Terry Hoeppner’s recent second surgery brought many of his own fathers’ battles rushing back in his memory. Jim Altman, who had helped coach high school football, also had a scar on his head from two surgeries.

“All the stuff with coach Hep reminded me of everything with my dad,” Altman said. “The surgery, the stitches on the side of the head. It’s a replay of all of it.”

Altman isn’t the only player who is especially haunted by Hoeppner’s recent struggles. Justin Frye’s father Kevin — a former IU player and high school coach — succumbed to brain cancer in May.
