Myles Brennan, who was competing for the starting quarterback position at LSU this season, shocked everybody by announcing his retirement and stating he would be “stepping away from football” after five seasons with the Tigers.

Brennan, who was the starter in 2020 before being sidelined with a season-ending injury, posted a lengthy statement to social media, effectively announcing his retirement from football.

“Over the last five years, I have given all of my body, heart, and soul to LSU football. Playing for LSU has been a dream come true. Wearing the purple and gold, running into Death Valley, winning a national championship, and starting at quarterback for the LSU Tigers – what more could a kid ask for? I will never forget the time I’ve spent and the memories I have made here,” his statement read.
