Former college receiver among the injured in Orlando shooting
Sumter played for the Jacksonville University Dolphins (FCS) from 2008 to 2010. In 2010, Sumter caught 23 passes for 456 yards and seven touchdowns.
It turns out one of the other survivors, Joshua McGill, gave Sumter the shirt off his back and may have saved Sumter's life. McGill told FOX News that he used the shirt to stop the bleeding:
Sumter is expected to go into recovery for two hours after the surgery.
