Tucker Melcher overcomes near death experience to play Wolf Pack football

Wolf Pack Senior Wide Receiver takes in one of his final practices at Nevada. In 2014, he would spent 19 days in the hospital battling for his life against a brain infection

When the Wolf Pack suit up on Saturday for their season finale against UNLV in the "Battle for the Fremont Cannon," it will be the final time for many of the team's seniors.

Among them is Reno native and Galena High product Tucker Melcher, who after a near-death experience three years ago is lucky to be alive - let alone playing football.
