Texas’ David Ash Returns To Practice

In recent months, the recurring topic of concussions has taken the football world by storm.  The caution tape surrounding the issue remains up and a prime example of the effects of the injury can be seen in University of Texas quarterback David Ash.  After winning the starting job, the fourth year junior was forced to miss almost the entire season due to a concussion in the season opener.  Ash returned two weeks later only to leave the game at half time because of recurring concussion symptoms.

Despite the injury, head coach Charlie Strong named Ash the starter at Big 12 media days based upon his previous 21 career starts.  With a renewed focus and his health finally restored, Ash will look to be the star quarterback he was recruited to be. Today was the first stepping-stone to Ash’s return to prominence and that was participating in his first practice since the injuries.  Although the practice was rather uneventful, questions about whether or not Ash can elevate the Texas program back to its elite status have already surfaced.
