Oklahoma’s Grant Calcaterra Retires



Oklahoma Sooners’ tight end Grant Calcaterra has officially announced his decision to retire from football due to multiple concussions, including one that he suffered during a recent practice.

“Football has been the biggest thrill of my life, and it kills me to know it’s over,” Calcaterra said during a video he posted on Twitter. “But I’m confident God does everything for a reason, and he has a plan for me. I believe football was preparing me for this moment my entire career.”

“I gave everything I had to this team and this game,” Calcaterra continued. “I’d like to think it might have caused an impact on this university, this football program and all the people around me.”

Calcaterra earned first-team All-Big 12 honors in 2018 following an impressive season in which he caught 26 receptions for 396 yards and 6 touchdowns. Calcaterra was an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection as a freshman in 2017.

Calacaterra said that he’s on track to graduate from Oklahoma in May and that he plans to return home to California to pursue a career as a firefighter.
