Mullian to receive VA Sports Hall of Fame Courage Award

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- The Virginia Sports Hall of Fame will present its first ever Courage Award in April, and few athletes are as courageous as the inaugural recipient, Glenn Mullian.  Mullian has faced obstacles on the golf course, such as sand traps and water hazards, but nothing like the adversity he's had to overcome since May of last year.

Mullian is one of the top amateur golfers in Virginia and was the 2010 VSGA Senior Golfer of the Year.  Last May, he nearly lost his life in a one-car accident on I-64 east of Charlottesville.  After numerous surgeries and having part of his right leg amputated, Mullian has gone through physical therapy and is well down the road to recovery.  He can walk about six miles per week and vows to return to the game he loves.  Mullian has already been out on the course a couple times, chipping and putting as best as he can.

Mullian will receive his award on April 28 during the Hall of Fame's annual banquet.
