Choosing Life Over Sports

In the latest edition of an athlete choosing quality of life over professional sports, this morning the New York Times is reporting that Chris Borland, linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, has decided to retire after just one-year in the sport.

Borland, who says he is retiring over health concerns due to head trauma, added “I just want to live a long, healthy life, and I don’t want to have any neurological diseases or die younger than I would otherwise,” Borland told ESPN’s Outside the Lines program. This news, coincidentally, comes in the midst of Brain Injury Awareness Month.
