Georgia junior starting fullback Merritt Hall has played his last down of college football and is medically disqualified, according to teammate and quarterback Hutson Mason.

“I talked to him yesterday on the bus coming back from Ramsey (on the Bulldogs’ pool day) and he was obviously pretty upset about it,” Mason told the Athens Banner-Herald. “He said he wanted to stay involved as much as he could without having to coach or be a G.A. You just feel bad for the kid and you realize how tough a position that is. You’re kind of just sacrificing your body and your head. Those concussions are so serious.”

Hall’s career is unfortunately over because of reported concussions.

Georgia has one of the top backfields in the country that features a four-headed monster headlined by Todd Gurley and followed by Keith Marshall, Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. But UGA’s fullback position has always been key, as they pave the way in UGA’s pro-style attack for the rushers.

Hall has played in 25 games in the past two seasons, and now we’ll see how Georgia’s offensive identity changes in 2014.
