Kyle Berger tears ACL

By Jeremy Birmingham on August 27, 2013 at 4:03p
Berger was poised for a big senior season.

Football can be a cruel game. Today comes confirmation that Kyle Berger, the star linebacker for Cleveland St. Ignatius and Ohio State commitment for the class of 2014, tore his ACL. Berger, injured during last Friday's scrimmage against Canton McKinley on a routine football play, will miss his senior year for the Wildcats.

The 6-foot-3, 215 Berger spent most of his summer recovering from an ankle injury, but returned to live action during the Nike Football Training Camp in Columbus in early June where he earned an invitation to Nike's The Opening in Oregon. Ohio's 3rd-ranked senior by composite feature and one of the leaders of the "Dream '14," Berger's been tireless in his pursuit of other coveted players to finish out the 2014 class.

Get well soon, Kyle.

That really sucks for a HS senior - not to be able to play out your last year.  Really feel for him.

Searching for silver linings, but this might means he comes to campus even hungrier to get back on the field.

Brutal.  This has to be devastating for the kid.  Speedy recovery, future Buckeye!

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

One of the reasons I was so excited about Kyle Berger being a Buckeye is revealed in that tweet above.  What better attitude to have than "challenge accepted?"  
Best wishes to Kyle in his rehab.  I look forward to his returning to form and even more committed than he was.  Go Bucks!

Enjoy being a senior as much as possible, take care of your body, and get ready for bigger and brighter things as a Buckeye.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

I dread hearing of anyone suffering a knee injury.  It sucks for him, his family, teammates, and fans to see him suffer through all of this.  Kyle certainly has the mental and physical tools and time needed to get back to where he needs to be.  Surgery, recovery, therapy, training and personal equipment for ACL tears are outstanding nowadays.  I wish him speedy recovery, determination and constant support.

I hope the surgery and recovery go well. Maybe you can get Adrian Peterson's surgeon.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. OSU has the  the capability to make the world's first bionic man. Kyle berger will be that man. Better than he was before. Better...stronger...faster.
Good luck and fast healing Kyle!!

Man, that sucks!  Good luck in recovery Kyle.  Use it to focus and better and stronger.  Come back better than ever!  I broke my arm my freshman year in high school.  I focused on just trying to get stronger in the weight room and it did help quite a bit the following years.  It sounds like you'll even do the same.  I'll be personally rooting for you to come back and make a big impact as a buckeye!
Go Bucks!!

Love the hunger that Berger has to rebound and excel. May all his recovery time be spent thinking about taking the frustration out on M*ch*gan.

Berger can heal up this year and redshirt his freshmen year at OSU and be ready to go.

Man, this kid really looks up to Jake Ryan.
In all seriousness, make a full recovery, Alex Kyle.

Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!
