Allen Kee / ESPN Images(PULLMAN, Wash.) — Washington Huskies receiver Isaiah Renfro officially announced that he will take a break from football to care for his depression and anxiety, ESPN reports.
Coach Chris Peterson said that Renfro, a sophomore, didn’t participate in the team’s spring camp because of “personal issues.”
In a lengthy statement on Twitter, Renfro explained that he was undergoing treatment at a hospital “in a special program for people like me, that taught me how to cope with my problems and what to do when I hit my lowest of lows.”
