Heart condition ends career of Florida freshman S Randy Russell

Heart condition ends career of Florida freshman S Randy Russell”

However, the soon-to-be college freshman will not be suiting up for the Gators at the college level, as the program announced that its "medical staff discovered an abnormality in Randy Russell's cardiac workup" and, as a result, he will not be able to play football. "Unfortunately, this condition will prohibit him from participating in athletics". He says he was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a heart condition that can cause cardiac arrest during vigorous physical activity.

Carol City coach Benedick Hyppolite expressed a similar sentiment of optimism for Russell's future to the Sun-Sentinel.

Russell is the second Florida player in as many months to have his career end prematurely because of a heart condition.

"[He] just was a warrior, would never give up, would never slow down, just throw his body around, always had the motivation to go a step further, always wanted to put forth his best effort, always was upbeat and motivated even after a loss", Hyppolite said.

New UF coach Dan Mullen will return the spring game to its traditional Saturday afternoon spot after two years under the lights in the Swamp.

"As tragic as this is for Randy and his family to hear this news, this discovery is life-saving for him", Mullen said. "Gators, we need to you to come out and support our top-ranked baseball, softball, tennis and track-and-field teams that weekend while also packing Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on that Saturday". Russell, a three-star recruit in the class of 2018 and rated as one of the top 400 prospects in the country, signed with the Gators during December's first-ever Early Signing Period.
