Former UH quarterback diagnosed with brain injury

By Stephen Tsai

POSTED:
LAST UPDATED: 04:43 p.m. HST, Mar 07, 2014


Former University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser he has been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury.

Brennan said the condition was caused from injuries suffered in a 2010 two-car accident in which he was a passenger. Brennan was hospitalized for eight days with injuries to his head, ribs and collarbone from the Big Island accident on Nov. 19, 2010.

Brennan signed with the Los Angeles KISS of the Arena Football League on Oct. 29, 2013. During the team's physical examinations, Brennan's condition was detected. Brennan said he was diagnosed with TBI following a series of medical tests. Dr. Vernon Williams specializes in neurology and pain management.

The KISS placed Brennan on the physically-unable-to-perform list last week.

"They did some tests, and there were major concerns about me playing football," said Brennan, adding, "I was medically not cleared to play."

Brennan said he will meet with a neurologist in Hawaii next week for a second opinion. He also wants to find out why he received medical clearance to play in what became short stints with the Hartford Colonials of the United Football League in 2011 and Saskatchewan of the Canadian Football League in 2012.

Brennan said he and his Honolulu neurologist will review "these new tests just so I can know if football is really over."

Brennan set several NCAA records, including most touchdown passes in a season (58), in a three-year UH career. He was the Washington Redskins' sixth-round pick in the 2008 National Football League draft. Brennan was with the Redskins for two seasons, spending the 2009 season on injured reserved, before being released in 2010. He was with the Oakland Raiders for a month in 2010 before also being released.

This past July, Brennan pleaded guilty to driving while under the influence of alcohol. He was fined $300.

Colt Brennan bought football to life in Hawaii and returned his senior year and by doing so past up millions of NFL bucks. His loyalty to Hawaii is genuine and sincere. Many, many of his fans would love to see him on the 6 o'clock news as a sports broadcaster. Like all of us, he has had his ups and downs, and he deserves very opportunity to contribute to Hawaii and lead a productive life. He put Hawaii before the big bucks and now we need to send him our aloha.

IRT serious on honest. His background was known before he got here. A "he said, she said," issue. UH could have beaten or lost to any other college team on any given day. Playing for UH or the WAC was not his downfall in the NFL, but his physical and mental abilities to overcome his shortfalls. Not an easy task. He did his best and you can't knock him for that. His potential is yet to be achieved, because he still has mental weaknesses to overcome. Good luck to him in his future endeavors.

So the reason he was driving drunk on the streets of Oahu with cocaine was because he had a TBI?

How about the doctor that he and girlfriend's accident almost killed? Does she get to drive around drunk with cocaine now too?

Mr Greene got him off, but that doesn't mean he wasn't arrestted for drunk driving through Kialua with a bag of cocaine.

How many touchdowns does it take to get you to look the other way on that?

My heart and soul goes out to Colt for all the unfortunate things that have occurred to him and, at the same time, I still think about the victim in that car crash in Kailua-Kona as she was one of the top rated surgeons and now her career was jeapardized by that accident where she underwent several surgeries incl. brain surgery and still needs several more to repair damage internal tissues. Both are suffering from the lingering effects of that tragic accident certainly caused by Colt's girlfriend who really was at fault but the victim, in this case, did not press charges for file any civil suit as she is more preoccupied in trying to recover from her own injuries so as we think and wish Colt nothing but the best we should also wish this lady nothing but the best for both of their complete recoveries. Nothing more and nothing less.

Injuries caused by the car accident with his girlfriend??? How did he or the KISS doctor come to that conclusion? I recall vicious hits on Brennan on the football field too. Could any of those be the reason? Hope Brennan isn't consciously trying to divert his head injury blame away from football. That cause seems more likely. It's not like he wasn't having behavioral problems BEFORE the accident. Will Brennan somehow become the cautionary tale for Hawaii parents that sticks? 1% chance Brennan's injury was from football? That should be enough for any responsible parent to keep their child from playing tackle football.

I'm sorry to hear of this latest setback for Colt. I think he endeared himself to the whole State when he declined the offer to go pro his junior year and elected to stay with his team and the State for his senior year. Following the less than spectacular bowl game, it's like his rhythm was off and he seemed to be one step behind. I think this was the last chance to play football for a living. I wish good things for him, in whatever direction he chooses.

I never enjoyed football until Colt Brennan played for UH. I believe that he was instrumental in many children's love of that sport, as well as many of us old and new UH football fans. People said nasty things publicly when he was caught drunk driving, I came to Colt's defense and said wait until the story plays out. This is the story playing out. People should not rush to judgment on other people, Colt has tried his best to move forward with what he has, give him a chance, give him aloha, and most of all send him healing prayers and encouragement. This is what he needs. He gave Hawaii his best, now it is time to return the favor! Hugs Colt :). Thank you for that autograph for my grandson many, many years ago at Torito's restaurant, Market City Shopping Center.

What P O's people about this article is that yes, Tsa is a sportswriter but to completely leave out the story of Dr Theresa Wang and how her life has been permanently destroyed by Brennan and his girlfriend who crossed their vehicle over onto the path of Wang and her family. The girlfriend claimed there was some mechanical problems with her vehicle. Did police, prosecutors and vehicle engineers and experts examine the car and determine if there was such mechanical problems that the girlfriend claimed? Point is this story is to elicit sympathy to Brennan for his "problems" in not getting to play in the NFL for but as a human being REGARDLESS if the writer is "just" a sports writer should mention the devastation the Wand family has experienced because of Colt and his girlfriend. If the writer cannot or is not willing to talk about Wang and her pain and suffering at the hands of Colt and the girlfriend, then maybe no more "sob" stories should be written about Colt. Of course everyone is entitled to their opnions and what they want to emphasize but there is a reason why many posters are just P O about Colt and don't want to hear about what he went through cause it pales in comparison to Wang and her family

People shouldn't make foolish comments about Colt's responsibility and ignore the facts. True, what happened to Dr. Wang was a needless tragedy. However, the police did in fact investigate the accident to see if criminal charges against Stream were warranted and they decided there was insufficient evidence to charge her criminallly (Hawaii News Now). Colt was not named as a Defendant in the lawsuit filed by Dr. Wang. If you are just a passenger, are you automatically responsible for the driver getting into an accident? There is no law that says that. Numerous stories have been done about Dr. Wang, this is about Colt now. Apparently you don't feel any sympathy for the injuries he may have gotten although he was not at fault.

Colt could tell the truth on why Stream crossed the center line and forever destroyed Wang's life. Did Stream fall asleep, answer her cell pone, text, change the radio station, etc or were they arguing at the time? He knows exactly what happened but will never say. Yes he helped to win games for UH but over his life he was convicted and expelled from college for attacking a female student, arrested and convicted for driving under the influence, and a passenger with unknown involvement or refused to say what happened that destroyed a family's life forever. What this story was trying to do is portray Brennan as some innocent 'victim' and no denying he had a great career as a UH quarterback and would have been better for himself and his career to forgo his senior year at UH and try to make it the NFL before the concussions he suffered on field, but he HIMSELF has to take responsibility for his actions that includes his life choices to attack a female student, drink and drive and be with someone like Stream who obviously has her own serious issues.

Colt was a great college quarterback, and our college quarterback. He has trouble off the field: alcohol, drugs, and I hope he turns it around and maybe goes into coaching. One attribute I absolutely respect about Colt is that he pursued his dream of being a pro quarterback all the way until the end; he never gave up on his dream. I think more people in the working world could learn to develop more perseverance and not give up too easily. He didn't.

Never got any breaks, always got NFL coaches who were duds and fired a short time afterwards or who changed the offense from the West Coast offense into something lame. Maybe a Hawaiian blessing would help? But best to you, what you did helps us get over what the program has sunk to.

The reaction of some Hawaii residents to Colt Brennan's recent misfortunes is so shameful. Is that who we are? People who kick those who are down? People who turn their back on those brought so much happiness to us in the past? People who scorn and ridicule one who who sacrificed fame and money for what he believed was ohana? There are some who take great pleasure in the misery of others: the term is "schadenfreude" and describes persons whose lives are so woeful with lack of self-worth that they can only live with themselves by making others unhappy. Colt Brennan deserves better than that from us.
