Chad Muma’s Love for Football has Persevered Linebacker through Diabetes

He’s not mentioned in the same breath as Nakobe Dean and Devon Lloyd, but Chad Muma certainly feels like he would be a good second-round consolation prize for any team in the 2022 NFL Draft, maybe even the Eagles.

The Wyoming linebacker dominated the position during his collegiate career and became a vocal leader for the Cowboys’ defense.

It is certainly difficult to make tackles and interceptions as a linebacker, but Muma is also battling a real-life medical issue – Type 1 Diabetes.

He continuously monitors his glucose levels with an insulin pump at practice and tests his blood sugar about halfway through them. During games, he tests himself after each quarter and has, at times, given himself insulin shots when those numbers come up below what they are supposed to be.
