Despite having started more
football games in the history of Marquette High, including an undefeated
State Championship campaign his sophomore year, Mark Scarpinato thought his
dreams of playing Big Ten football might never come true. Having received a
scholarship to play defensive line at Michigan State University, he required
treatment for injuries to both shoulders and needed arthroscopic treatment
for a meniscus tear in his knee. Rehab from the knee surgery came quickly
with full recovery in a few weeks. But large tears in both shoulders
required more surgery.
“Dr. McCarty diagnosed my injuries, explained
my options and performed two great surgeries on my shoulders. It took some
time to rehab, and sometimes I doubted whether I would ever play football
again. But once I healed, I was able to get back to playing at a high level.
Now I’m as strong as ever.”
Mark started in the Rose Bowl for
Michigan State, making a critical play at the end of the game to seal the
victory for the Big Ten Champs. This fall, Mark intends to pursue his dream
of becoming an orthopedic surgeon himself, attending the Medical College of
“I hope one day to be able to help athletes to get back
on the field and enjoy their careers just as Dr. McCarty did for me!”
