Old Dominion quarterback Blake LaRussa has announced that he will forfeit his senior year in order to attend seminary. On Wednesday, LaRussa said he intends to graduate in May before pursuing his Master of Divinity degree.
"It has been an incredible journey with Old Dominion football, but I would like to announce that I will be moving on from football after I graduate this spring and will be going into full-time ministry," LaRussa said in a candid statement. "This fall (2019) I will be going to seminary school to start my Master's of Divinity. I am so grateful for all my coaches and teammates who I have grown so close with these past four years."
In his heartfelt remarks, LaRussa noted that he was "excited to pursue what I have always known to be my heart's greatest desire, and that is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and help people find hope."
