From brain injury to basketball: Michael Otoo returns to the sport he loves

Doctors told Michael Otoo he would likely never be able to play varsity basketball again after suffering a severe traumatic brain injury in the summer of 2016.

It was a crushing prognosis for a man who’s been playing basketball since he was nine. Otoo had spent the two years prior playing for the Mount Allison Mounties in Sackville, N.B., and after the injury, he made it his goal to once again play for the university.

On Friday, he finally accomplished that goal. Otoo, of Ottawa, played in three games over the weekend as part of a tournament held by St. Thomas University.
