NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Vanderbilt quarterback Patton Robinette has decided to end his football career early to concentrate on medical school.
Robinette plans to enter the Vanderbilt School of Medicine this summer to study orthopedics. He said Friday it would have been too difficult to balance his time playing quarterback for a Southeastern Conference program while also attending medical school.
"I don't know if that would even be possible, especially here at Vanderbilt," Robinette said at a news conference. "More than that, this is my career we're talking about. I want to be able to give that 110 percent of my focus."
