(NFL) – Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier has reached levels many never thought he never would in his recovery from a spinal injury suffered against the Cincinnati Bengals on Dec. 4, 2017.
His vast determination, heart and mind over matter approach had him go from being in a wheelchair to walking in just a few years. He never gave up, working hours on end to push himself to the limit.
Today, though, Shazier made a tough decision in life. He officially retired from the NFL, announcing it on social media. He was already on the reserve/retired list.
“I am here today to make sure the world knows how much I still love football. How grateful I am for everything football gave me. I am here today to let the world know that today I am officially retiring from the game I love so much,” said an emotional Shazier on the video he shared.
