Four Whitman-Hanson football players have overcome Type 1 diabetes

WHITMAN – Some teams bond over pasta parties or movie marathons. The Whitman-Hanson High football team monitors its blood glucose levels together.

Well, at least four of the Panthers do.

Senior quarterback Cam Burrows has been dealing with Type 1 diabetes since he was 2 years old. On another team that condition might make him somewhat unique. Here he’s just one of the guys because three other Whitman-Hanson players — senior fullback/linebacker Brendan White, senior guard/defensive end Connor Sottak and sophomore tight end/receiver/defensive end DeVaughn Marshall — have the exact same issue.

“We think there’s something in the water,” Burrows said with a laugh. “It’s weird. But I guess we make it work.”
