PULLMAN, Wash --- Former WSU football player Riley Sorenson’s cancer is in remission.

His struggle is something that very few people have had the misfortune of experiencing.

Sorenson has been an inspirational story for others who are going through a tough time in their life. He is a great example of perseverance of the human spirit.
