“I will be medically retiring from football,” said Eubanks. “I’d like to thank Coach Franklin and the entire Penn State coaching staff, the fans, and my teammates for welcoming me into the family. Although my playing career has come to an end, I can’t think of a better way than to leave as a Nittany Lion. I’ll always love football, and I’ll always appreciate everything the game has done for me.”
Due to consecutive severe concussions, my playing career has ended. Thank you to everyone who has supported my football journey thus far. I appreciate all my former coaches, trainers, and teammates for helping me grow as a player and as a man. pic.twitter.com/Twe3DbzYuz
