Injuries got the best of the Utah Utes Quarterback Jordan Wynn and has caused him to retire from football. You have to feel for a player who’s only goal was to play in the Pac 12 and compete against the very best teams possible.
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn plans to retire as a football player following his latest injury, this one suffered to his non-throwing shoulder in Friday night’s 27-20 overtime loss at Utah State. Wynn made the decision after consulting with his father and Utah coach Kyle Whittingham.
Jordan Wynn, who in 2009 was named the Poinsettia Bowl MVP to cap the best season ever by a Utah true freshman, announced today that he is retiring from the sport after his fourth shoulder injury since 2010. Wynn was beginning his fourth season as the starter but was only a junior in eligibility due to a medical extension from the NCAA for his season-ending injury last year. He finishes his career with a 14-7 record and played in 22 games total. Wynn has had three shoulder surgeries (two to his left arm) and the extent of his latest shoulder injury is still being evaluated. He leaves the field ranked eighth in career passing yards at Utah ( 4,637 ), completing 60-percent of his pass attempts ( 375-of-621 ). He is one of 11 quarterbacks in school history to throw for 4,000 yards and his 33 touchdown throws are the sixth-most by a Ute quarterback. Wynn had 11 games with 200 or more passing yards, four of which were 300-yard games. In six quarters this season, Wynn completed 25-of-38 passes ( 65.8% ) for 247 yards and two touchdowns (one interception). He has completed a bachelor’s degree in economics and is currently working toward a second degree in sociology
“It’s tough, no doubt,” said Whittingham, while praising Wynn’s contributions and toughness.
Wynn suffered the injury after getting hit following an incompletion with 1:04 remaining in the first half and the Utes trailing 13-0. Backup Jon Hays took over and played most of the second half. True freshman Travis Wilson also saw action.
