Arnold Alum Cody Saunders Forced to Retire From Football Due to Medical Condition

MORGANTOWN, WV. - Former Arnold quarterback Cody Saunders will be forced to hang up his cleats.

He has been notified by doctors that he can no longer play football due to a rare medical condition in his shoulder called trapezius palsy.

He was expected to battle this fall for the backup spot behind former Gator quarterback Will Grier and perhaps see his first action of Division I ball.

The silver lining in this is that West Virginia will honor his scholarship and allow him to continue pursuing his degree on a medical redshirt.

Coach Dana Holgorson thanked Saunders in a statement for his contributions to Mountaineer Football.

Saunders was a four star prospect and a top 20 QB in the country coming out of Arnold High School.

We know this is a tough situation for him, and we wish him the best of luck while finishing school.
