Steven Threet, the very productive quarterback for the Arizona State Sun Devils is ending his career as a football player, due to concussions;
Steven Threet, who has suffered four concussions in the past five years, has decided to end his football career at Arizona State.
Threet helped revive ASU’s offense last season, completing 61.9 percent of his passes, for 2,534 yards and 18 touchdowns with 16 interceptions. He suffered two concussions, the first Oct. 23 at California and the second Nov. 26 against UCLA.
“At this point, I think this is the best decision, given the circumstances I’m in,” said Threet, adding that he’s still experiencing symptoms from the UCLA concussion that ended his season. He still has headaches and has trouble sleeping.
“It’s extremely hard,” Threet said. “Obviously, this is a game I love. I love the guys that I’ve played with. Throughout my career I’ve had to make a lot of tough decisions, but this has been the toughest I’ve made so far.”
Threet has joined Tre’ Newton of Texas and Steven Thomas of BYU as the third college football player to end their career early due to concussions.
