Tings Quit

USC safeties Brandon and Ryan Ting decided to quit playing football, “so that they can focus on the demands of their medical school ambitions now that they graduated this past spring,” according to a school spokesperson.

“For the past three-and-a-half years, Brandon and I have been able to balance the demands of football and academics. Now, as our focus turns toward medical school, we realized it was in our best interests
to end our playing careers. We realized we couldn’t balance both if we want to be serious about med school. While it is difficult to leave our teammates, we know that they and the talented incoming recruits will have a great season in 2006. We spent this summer working with many of those younger players to help them get ready for
this season, so we know the kind of talent the Trojans have. We appreciate the opportunity that coach Carroll gave us and we’ll always remain true to the Trojan Family. We value the fact that we were part of some special times at USC.”
