Wisconsin Recruit to Take Leave for Depression

posted in: College Football | 1

I have to give a lot of credit to Jaden Gault for having the courage to get help for his depression and putting off playing football for Wisconsin while he does so. Not only is seeking help as a young make a difficult thing to do, but in the macho culture of college football, where plenty of kids wind up playing through injury and illness “for the good of the team”, it’s good to have a kid and a coaching staff recognize that there are bigger things than football.

Here’ hoping Jaden is back playing again soon, but more important, here’s hoping for a heatlhy and happy kid.
