Wyatt Mazour won’t be pursuing a career in professional football.
The former Husker announced Wednesday on social media that he would be retiring instead of participating in Nebraska’s Pro Day on Thursday. He will move into a career in physical therapy.
The 5-foot-9, 200-pound Mazour from Albion walked on in 2015 and eventually earned a scholarship. He played in 26 games, carrying 32 times for 150 yards and two touchdowns while making six catches for 73 yards.
Wrote Mazour: “I’ll forever cherish every second that I was able to wear the N on the side of my helmet.”
