DENVER -- After a stellar prep football career at Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver, Lacy McDonald was given a full-ride scholarship to Washington State University. Before setting foot on campus, tragedy struck the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001. McDonald opted out of his scholarship to fight for his country. Three tours of duty later, McDonald is still putting others before himself.
