Clemson's Justin Foster, never fully recovered from COVID-19, gives up football

Clemson defensive end Justin Foster, who missed the 2020 season because of COVID-19 and related illness, won’t return to football. 

Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said Wednesday before the start of spring practice that Foster decided to give up the sport after graduating in December. Foster contracted the coronavirus last summer and never fully recovered. 

“He had a very tough fall,” Swinney said. “COVID was a very tough thing for him. Justin is a guy who has always battled asthma and allergies. He’s always had a challenge with that. When he got COVID last summer, that really set him back. He just wasn’t able to do what he needed to do. He’s way better than he was back in August. But he’s still kind of working through that.”
