Utah Center Jeremy Olsen Decides to End Career

-

Significant injuries in sports has caused a recent trend of players deciding to call it quits over the past few years. Most of those life-changing decisions are football due to repeated concussions. However, basketball players can fall into this category as well.

Utah center Jeremy Olsen decided it was time to walk away from the game of basketball due to hip issues.

He will be placed on a medical scholarship for his senior year. During his three seasons, Olsen found himself on three Pac-12 All-Academic teams which is an impressive feat.

Olsen talked about his decision to walk away from the game he loves in a press release.

“It’s difficult to have my career cut short due to injury, but playing basketball for Utah has been one of the most amazing times of my life,” Olsen stated. “I have had so many great experiences with my teammates that I will cherish. Being a part of the progress this program has made has been so rewarding.

“This university is a place that my wife and I will always love. I am grateful that I will still be able to assist the program next year.”

Olsen averaged 1.6 points per game and 1.4 rebounds per game this past season.
