Tre’ Newton, son of former NFL player Nate Newton, has had to retire from football. Tre’ is not in the NFL, or CFL or even the UFL, Tre’ is a student-athlete at the University of Texas. Medical consultation has suggested that he no longer play the sport he loves after multiple concussions in high school and college, the latest occurring November 6th of this year. Tre’ was in his sophomore season as a running back for the Longhorns.
It is not often we see this kind of news at such a young age, but it’s probably a good decision.
