A football injury could keep you from pursuing your goals.

Cap's right about that, which I hadn't even thought of originally. Just be careful with football

Just wondering, what type of injury would keep a person from being a firefighter. I had ACL surgery on my right knee in high school, from a football injury. I passed a pension physical no problem.Shawn Clark

Get your education out of the way first and if football is your meal ticket to that education than play has if you are going for a pro contract. Like OSU stated I had an ACL surgery also and have been on the job for 18 years. Has long as you can pass the physical for the job don't sweat it.
REMEMBER...EDUCATION FIRST!!!...FIRE DEPARTMENT SECOND !!!!
