Playing through pain is part of the game

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Two broken hands couldn’t keep Landon Feichter off the field last year against Indiana State, a broken leg in the first half was a different story and the fifth year senior is ready for whatever comes his way this season.

The Purdue Boilermakers biggest loss from the 2013 secondary is cornerback Ricardo Allen. Despite his departure to graduation and the NFL, the Gold and Black return an experienced secondary led by safety Feichter.

He suffered three separate injuries last year, which included the broken leg in the second game of the season against the Sycamores.

In all he missed six games, but finished the year strong despite playing through pain. Eight months removed from his last game, Feichter is fully recovered and ready to go.

“It’s completely out of my mind. I don’t think about the injuries — it is what it is. They happened and it’s unfortunate, but it’s not going to hold me back from doing anything this year. And if I play with two broken hands again, then I’m up for the challenge. So no, it doesn’t hold me back at all,” said Feichter.
