Vermont’s Josh Speidel, Who Was In A Car Crash Four Years Ago That Ended His Career, Scores First Points On Senior Night

Follow @BrandedKyle

Josh Speidel was a highly touted recruit for the University of Vermont coming out of high school until a traumatic brain injury he suffered in a car crash ended his career.

Here’s his high school highlights. At one point the 6’7 forward was getting looks from Michigan, Purdue, Xavier & Northern Illinois as an All-State player in Indiana.

He was featured on SVP’s 12pm Sportscenter during his “1 Big Thing” segment last year.

What an awesome moment that was unfortunately brought on by tragedy. And how about the Catamounts Head Coach honoring Josh’s scholarship and spending time in the hospital by Josh’s side amidst the Catamounts season. And how about the NCAA! The fucking NCAA actually doing something right for once and not having Josh Speidel’s scholarship count against the team. More stuff like this NCAA less penalizing kids for taking an ounce more of pasta then they’re allowed rationed at team dinners.

Here’s his intro to the Purdue crowd who he received a standing O from.

All culminating to tonight and an awesome moment on senior night no one, especially Josh and his family, will ever forget.
