This is a shame, but I completely understand. I remember him well at MHS with Hicks as QB. Much potential unfulfilled but not due to lack of desire. Sounds like he fought through injuries all he could and then listened to what his body was telling him. Best of luck to you in the future, Pooh!

I thought Pooh was a great player. Always seemed to be highly dependable with the pressure on. Great hands!
Gonna miss you Mr. Richardson.

Is he healthy enough to run track? Do you think he will try to come out to run the quarter or hurdles?
