LSU QB Myles Brennan Calls it Quits
6th year senior Myles Brennan started training camp for the LSU Tigers this season battling for the number one spot on the roster against Garrett Nussmeier and Jayden Daniels. He lost.
To say Brennan has had a rocky career at LSU would be like saying the Titanic had a rough night as sea. It was pretty much a disaster. Between getting passed over for the likes of Joe Burrow and Jayden Daniels, and season ending injuries...Brennan decided to hang up his cleats. No hard feelings. It just wasn't meant to be.
Brennan was backup quarterback to, arguably, the best college quarterback to ever grip the pigskin. He was on the sidelines as Joe Burrow led the Tigers to an undefeated season and a National Championship. And the best college football season of all time... yes, I said it... the best college football season of all time. The 2019 LSU Tigers will go down as one of the best teams in all of college football. And Myles was on the roster. But, it just wasn't meant to be...
After 3 years as a backup, Brennan was named starting quarterback in 2020. After 3 starts his stats looked great... passing for 1,112 yards and 11 touchdowns... only to have his season cut short by an abdominal injury. Then, he missed out on the 2021 season due to a non-football arm injury suffered during a fishing trip. It just wasn't meant to be.
Brennan, a 6th year senior, started this training camp once again battling for a starting position, only to be told he wouldn't be the starter this fall. Even though Brennan wasn't named starter, Coach Brian Kelly had nothing but good things to say about him:
“Myles is a great leader who has made a tremendous impact on this program, and he has earned the respect of everyone here.... Myles has always embodied the traits required to fulfill our mission to graduate champions, and we have full confidence those traits will help him succeed at every step in his journey as he moves forward.”
Where ever that journey takes him, unfortunately for Brennan, it won't be LSU.... it just wasn't meant to be...
