Ros' Career Ends
Bryce Ros

Posted Aug 25, 2009


ATHENS – Bryce Ros spent two years fighting to get healthy, but a foot injury he suffered in high school never seemed to heal.

Wednesday, his football career came to an official end when Georgia petitioned the NCAA for a medical exemption that would allow him to stay on scholarship after leaving the team.

“It’s just never fun,” Richt said of the situation. “It’s nothing that anybody looks forward to. But it was just a situation where he couldn’t go. He never really fully recovered from it since high school.”

Ros, whose father Frank Ros played on Georgia’s 1980 national championship team, played tight end at Kennesaw Mountain High School and redshirted last season. He suffered an injury to his right big toe in high school that required surgery, but never fully healed. The injury was determined to be degenerative and would prohibit normal football activities, according to Georgia’s trainer Ron Courson.

Once Georgia’s petition is accepted by the NCAA, Ros will be allowed to remain on scholarship but will not count toward the 85 scholarship limit for the Bulldogs. Richt said the scholarship will be applied toward next year’s signing class.
