Catching up on something I missed from a few days ago. …

You might remember from a couple weeks ago a dead-tree edition feature on Matt Kelly, a four-year starter on Virginia’s lacrosse team who went out for the Cavaliers’ football team this fall in the hopes he might play on special teams.

It didn’t end especially well for the Illinois native. According to this and this, Kelly suffered a torn ACL and will miss the season.

It effectively ends his career, too, since this is Kelly’s fifth year at Virginia.

Clearly, this wasn’t a big name on the Cavaliers’ team this year, but it does represent a lost chance at filling in a gap for Kelly, a football fanatic. He had a chance to play football out of high school at a lower division, but instead opted to play lacrosse at Virginia. It’s just a shame his last crack at football ended so quickly.
