SAN DIEGO ---- Lynell Hamilton felt he was invincible and indestructible. He was an 18-year-old freshman in the midst of one of the best individual seasons ever produced by a San Diego State football player. Occasionally, he would see players get injured and need help leaving the field. Each time, he'd think the same thoughts.

"That's never going to happen to me," Hamilton truly believed.

Why would he think otherwise? He was the 'L-Train,' and there just wasn't anything that was going to derail his season. He had his sights on breaking Marshall Faulk's school record for rushing yards by a freshman and leading the Aztecs to a rare bowl-game appearance.
