I was forced to quit as a junior in high school. It sucks. I can only imagine what it's like to have such stellar promise and then to be denied when you're ready to take the next step.

Apply the work ethic that made you a football star to your life efforts, my friend, and you will go far. Hope you stay at Texas and get your degree. 

Still, this just sucks for him.

This is seriously what every one of these kids needs to learn.

I'm old enough to have played in Jr. High (middle school) when that was a big part of what was expected of us. We were expected to have good grades and be good students in every way. We ran punishment or got swats for poor grades and behavior mishaps.

A friend of mine pointed out long ago how you can see women athletes in high school and college applying their efforts all across the board.

This program is unraveling fast.

We've known this was the likely outcome since April, don't use this as a reason to melt down

Damn.  This really sucks for him.  Man, hope he makes the most out of this and that football was able to get him a degree.

Scholarship count down to 78 with him and Urquidez going portal. Have room for 24 in the 2020 class with no other attrition.

 Damn that sucks. I haven’t been this excited about a linebacker since DJ.  Hope he finishes up school at Texas. I wonder what else he likes to do besides football. Would be cool if he became a coach.  He’s got to be aware of how much athletic talent and potential he had, going to be hard to walk away from the game but yeah would be cool if he became a coach for sure

Hate to see that. Like others, I was wanting to see him fuck shit up on the field. Heath is much more important though.

That is still expected in almost all HS schools in Texas. No Pass No Play still exists and most winning coaches expect their players to behave in class

Who the fuck is Heath?  Is he a linebacker?

Glad to hear it. My experience actually predates No Pass No Play.

I’m gonna have to start proofreading. My phone has been getting me pretty good lately. That should have said health.

This has to be really hard for him. From all accounts he attacked his rehab and enthusiastically participated with the team in any way possible. A hard decision but the right one. Best of luck to DGF. More than anything, I hope he doesn't end up at a school with a med staff more beholden to the football program that gets him on the field when he shouldn't be.

As for Texas, if they weren't already operating as if he'd never play, they're dumb.

Good luck to him. Maybe he sticks around and goes the Frank Bush route.

Must have been 20  years since I went the Frank Bush route.

Can’t say I miss it.

Man that sucks.  Good luck to him.  All the potential in the world and someone we needed badly.

No worries - Orlando was in charge of recruiting LB's.  I'm sure he left the cupboard stocked for the next guy...
