Mike Utley was the greatest football player in the history of John F. Kennedy High School in Seattle, Washington. He became only the second player at Washington State University to earn consensus first team All American Honors. During the Rams game in November 1991, he fractured his 6th and 7th cervical vertebrae and became paralyzed.
Through his own fight to walk again, Utley founded the Mike Utley Foundation in 1991. The Foundation is dedicated to supporting research to cure paralysis and to help all people with spinal cord injuries.
