2018 DC Eagles Exemption Request for Jared Kirkwood

Club: 
Player: 
Jared Kirkwood
Exemption Type: 
Eligibility Points
Reason: 
Jared underwent hip surgery on April 5th, 2018 for a genetic hip problem that left a floating piece of bone in his hip and caused extreme pain - he only received clearance to play contact again starting in October, so was unable to play any games this season while recovering. Despite not being able to play, Jared has been a huge presence on the team; he ran the men's bench at most of their games, and coached the women all season. We are excited to have Jared back on the field (though we cherish his presence on the sidelines too!) so please grant him an exemption for Nationals.
League Ruling
Status: 
Granted
Reason: 
Medical exception. Returning player. Paid. Granted.
