The QB for the Texas Longhorns, David Ash, has officially decided to hang up his helmet and move forward with his life. He sustained his first concussion in September 2013. After the August 30th win against N. Texas, he had headaches for 7 or 8 days. After consulting with the Coach Charlie Strong and the team doctors, he concluded that for his health and for the benefit of his future, he needed to give up football. At his press conference he said,
“I’m at peace with that. God has given me a peace. I have a lot of hope and a lot of belief that there’s still awesome days ahead for me. I’ve played quarterback on one of the premier stages in college football. I’ve experienced a lot of things that people everywhere desire to experience, and it’s been really fun. I can’t begin to say what a blessing it’s been.”
Not a lot of young men would make this courageous decision. We wish him all the best!
