RUSTON, La. (AP) — Louisiana Tech running back Jaqwis Dancy says he's been informed that cancer treatments he's been receiving since last fall have been successful.

Diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin's lymphoma last October, Dancy says "it felt amazing" to hear on Thursday night that he was cancer-free. He says his biggest goal now is to return to playing for the Bulldogs.

Dancy, a sophomore from Junction City, Arkansas, has been undergoing chemotherapy at St. Jude's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. He is scheduled for a couple more rounds of radiation aimed at ensuring no cancer cells are detected.

Dancy played in 13 games as a freshman in 2015, returning 17 kickoffs for 296 yards.

He did not play last season, first because of an ankle injury and then because of his cancer diagnosis.
