Stanford linebacker Ryan Beecher says he has lymphoma
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Stanford junior inside linebacker Ryan Beecher has announced he is receiving treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma but will remain enrolled in classes and looks forward to making a full recovery. He also hopes to contribute again to the Cardinal football team.
The school released his statement Friday with no additional details. Beecher appeared in 13 games last season and made three tackles for the Cardinal, who lost to USC in the Pac-12 championship game and fell to TCU in the Alamo Bowl.
Beecher says: “With the help and support of my family, friends and teammates, I remain inspired to once again contribute to the Cardinal football team.”
