VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - After suffering what appeared to be a career-threatening injury during his last game as a high school student, Corwin Cutler is back and appears miraculously healthy.
The highly-touted quarterback out of Ocean Lakes High School in Virginia Beach, who's committed to the University of Virginia, threw a touchdown pass in his first action back on a football field since tearing his ACL, MCL, LCL and his meniscus not even a year ago.
To add to it, Cutler had to scramble a little bit to make the play happen.
Cutler, wearing a protective knee brace similar to the one Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III wears, stood in the shotgun formation, had to lean over to handle a somewhat poor snap, side-stepped an on-coming rush, then rocketed a pass over the middle. His receiver took care of the rest and sprinted about 60 yards untouched into the endzone.
"I had to get at least one while I was here," Cutler kept saying to his teammates on the sideline afterward.
His father watched his son make his first steps back on to the field, and believes its nothing short of a miracle to see Cutler back so quickly. "I don't even know how to explain it man. It's just one of those things where it's nothing but the Lord," said Cutler's father Carson, "There's no other way that you can explain a ACL, MCL and LCL tear to come back how fast he's come back.
"Even (his doctor) said in the last 30 years he's been doing surgery, there's been nobody that's done this. It's great."
Against Granby High School in the first round of the 2012 state playoffs, Cutler, then a senior, tried to recover a fumble, attempted to scramble out of a tackle, and went down awkwardly, his knee baring the brunt. He spent months rehabilitating his knee.
Now playing for Fork Union Military Academy, Cutler played his first game back in front of a "home" crowd at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex. He gave them a taste of what could be in Charlottesville a few years from now.
