UGA Junior Fullback Merritt Hall Medically Disqualified

UGA junior fullback Merritt Hall has been medically disqualified from the football team for recurrent concussions, the school official confirmed today.

Reports of Hall having to give up football first surfaced on Tuesday when quarterback Hutson Mason first told reporters about the situation.

Merritt Hall hails from Alpharetta, Georgia and played at the Wesleyan School. He walked on to the UGA football team in 2011 and earned a scholarship in 2012.

At Georgia, Hall appeared in 25 games and made seven starts.

Hall was the subject of a viral video last week from preseason practice. Freshman Nick Chubb knocked him down during a drill

Teammate and good friend Todd Gurley posted the below picture to his social media accounts. It came with the following text:
