Concussions Force Penn State’s Winston Eubanks To Quit Football

Penn State’s Winston Eubanks is finished playing football.

The senior transfer from Shippensburg announced today on Twitter that due to multiple severe concussions, he will no longer attempt to play football.

Eubanks released this statement on Twitter:

“I will be medically retiring from football. 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 football, and I’ll always appreciate everything the game has done for me.”

The native of LaSalle College High School in Philadelphia arrived at Penn State after playing for Shippensburg, where he enjoyed a successful career. Eubanks was a two-time team captain and a three-time All-PSAC first team player. Back in 2017, he was named the PSAC Eastern Division Freshman of the Year.

In his only season with the Nittany Lions, Eubanks played in seven games and recorded one catch in the home opener against Villanova.
