Every day I put together the Morning Playbook here I try to do so with a light heart while covering some of the top college football news and sharing some stories that tend to fly under the radar. But this is one I feel is a bit more serious in tone than usual. One of Crystal Ball Run's favorite players, Tyrann Mathieu, is reportedly heading to a drug rehab center, and there's never anything to joke about when you get on this topic.
FOX 8, the FOX affiliate in New Orleans, reports that Mathieu and his family have agreed to place the defensive play maker in a drug rehab center in Houston instead of sticking at LSU to attend classes or transferring to another school to play football this fall. I can only imagine that this was a difficult decision to come to for one of the game's top players, but clearly it seems as though Mathieu is placing his priorities in the right order here, and that is something we should all get behind.
I do not have any personal connections to drug rehab so I can only go off of what I see on television, and not just Celebrity Rehab. I know enough to know that this will be a tough journey for Mathieu. I'll take the time now to wish him the best of luck with his recovery and on behalf of the entire Crystal Ball Run staff we hope to see him get past his issues, clean up his life and get back to doing what we enjoy watching him do if he feels it still suits him.
