Kansas running back Kezelee Flomo (30) makes his way up the field after a catch during an open practice on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at Memorial Stadium.
When the KU football team’s medical staff discovered Kezelee Flomo, a transfer from North Dakota School of Science, had a heart condition, the 5-foot-10, 215-pound would-be senior had to retire. Even so, Flomo remains involved in a student-coach capacity, and the program announced Wednesday the former running back will be awarded a scholarship. By Benton Smith

While anybody who follows the program knows how valuable veterans such as Daniel Wise, Steven Sims Jr. and Joe Dineen are for Kansas football, the significance of dozens of their teammates easily goes unnoticed, especially this time of year, with the season still months away.
