When the lights go out: Former football players reflect on leaving the sport they love

Andy Tu

The end of the 2014-2015 season was the beginning of yet another new year of football. For Matt Burke and Brighton Balfrey it was the end. This year, Burke and Balfrey spend their Friday nights on the bleachers. Instead of football, Burke weightlifts. For Balfrey he runs cross country. For both, the Friday night lights have gone out.
