Georgia State QB has virus-related heart condition
Georgia State freshman quarterback Mikele Colasurdo has been diagnosed with a heart condition after contracting COVID-19 and will not play this season, he announced Thursday.
In a post shared to Twitter, he thanked Panthers head coach Shawn Elliott and the training staff for “providing a safe environment” for practice.
“Ultimately it was the procedures and tests set forth by GSU that allowed the doctors to find this condition in my heart and help keep me safe,” Colasurdo wrote. “I am very thankful. I can’t wait to watch my team compete this fall and I could not be more excited to return for the 2021 season.”
Colasurdo was a three-star recruit in Georgia State’s 2020 recruiting class out of Chapman High School in Inman, S.C.
Colasurdo did not specify his heart condition. Myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle, has been linked to the coronavirus.
