Sometimes giving up a dream is a must. Nebraska quarterback Kody Spano confirmed with Fox Sports on Tuesday after two ACL injuries, a shoulder injury, and more, he will be forced to hang up his cleats for good.

“It is disappointing, but I can tell you this, when one door closes, another one opens, even in the most unexpected places,” said Spano. “Even though I am torn up about it, there is a silver lining in this cloud and I am excited for new beginnings.”

Spano will apply for a medical scholarship and look to help with the coaching staff, staying on as a student assistant coach. Coaching is something the sophomore had hoped to get into in the future.

A 3-star prospect in the 2008 recruiting class, the Stephenville high school product (TX) threw for over 5000 yards in Texas 4A football. He originally committed with Oklahoma State, but found out there were no scholarships after grey-shirting. Nebraska and Tulsa quickly approached him about enrolling at their respected schools after being asked by Mike Gundy to walk-on.

At this point, Nebraska now only has three scholarship quarterbacks on roster, with Jamal Turner also having experience at the position in high school.
