Michael Burns, an outfielder for Cisco College (Texas) who is from Littleton, had surgery in April to remove a cancerous tumor from his left leg the size of a small football. Burns arrived later than his teammates to Grand Junction because he was undergoing chemotherapy treatments.

Cisco’s Burns provides team support

The scar on top of Michael Burns’ upper thigh is almost eight inches long.
Pictures from the surgery in April to remove a cancerous tumor from the left leg of the Cisco College (Texas) outfielder are gruesome. They also show the size of Burns’ tumor, which Wranglers’ coach David White said was as big as a small football.
Yet there’s nothing small about what Burns means to his Cisco teammates. To them, he’s the main reason the Wranglers are in the Alpine Bank Junior College World Series.
