Bummer. I hope his medical situation does not affect his future in anything other than football.

I'm sorry that he won't be able to make it back on the field but very glad he will have the opportunity to continue his education.

Sorry to hear about this. I remember Denzel McCoy's career ending before he took the field. I'm glad he still has his scholarship.

It's tough to see the silver lining in circumstances like this, but if there's a school where something like this happens to you, GT is about as good of a school as there is. Chase will continue to be on scholarship and will get a world class education. Really sucks for him and his family, but he can still come out on top once he graduates from GT.

Great player and a great family! In the end though it's only a game. He has made a wise choice IMO. Good luck to him and he is right, he will always be a Yellow Jacket!

Friends of the family. Went to Tech with his father. Smart, but tough decision. Chase is a smart kid with his whole life ahead of him. He will do well in the business world. Don't need to mess that up with anymore severe concussions.

Like others here, I'm disappointed that Chase won't be able to continue his career; he was a revelation last year.

Oth, it really is just a game. Putting your health at serious risk for it would be ridiculous. I hope Chase continues to do well in the classroom and doesn't have regrets for what might have been. His career was short, but he was a true college football player during it. He needs to keep that in mind and not look back.

Good luck with the rest of your life and thanks from all of us.

All great points given above. I am sure that Chase and his family are glad that he chose Georgia Tech specially now that this situation has occurred.
