Florida quarterback Luke Del Rio was dropped to the ground on a brutal tackle Saturday, which sent him to the locker room. The senior had surgery to repair a broken collarbone Monday, and he’ll be out the remainder of the 2017 season.
This marks the second season in a row in which Del Rio has suffered a season-ending injury. That’s rough. However, showing the mental fortitude you’d expect from Jack Del Rio’s son, Luke tweeted out a message on Sunday that showed he’s not letting it get him down.
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond. I'm not going to let my circumstances change who I am. Thank you everyone for the🙏🏻 pic.twitter.com/goElB6OYIz

One day later, not long after the Oakland Raiders head coach had to announce his starting quarterback is out for anywhere between 2-6 weeks with a fracture in his back, Del Rio sent his son an encouraging message.

It doesn’t get any better than that. On a totally unrelated note, suddenly it’s very dusty in my office.
