Former Notre Dame QB-Golson speaks for 1st time since suspension


"I've been working out, keeping my head up..."  former Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson said.

"Had a little adversity of course, but I've learned that you can't sit down and just take that, you've gotta pick yourself back up and keep moving forward and continue doing what you're doing and everything is gonna work it self out in the end.  So, I've been keeping my head up and working out and trying to get back on the field," Golson told Myrtle Beach TV stations WPDE and WBTW Saturday at a charity basketball event in his hometown.
Golson will miss the entire 2013 football season after leading the Irish to an undefeated season and the BCS National Championship game in 2012.

Golson told WPDE, "I will be returning in the spring, that's pretty much it."  Notre Dame suspended Golson for what he called in a statement at the time, "poor academic judgment."

He would not talk in specifics about the "poor academic judgement", but did say that he is trying to stay in shape and prepare to return to Notre Dame after his suspension.

"Obviously I was hurt but you have to pick yourself back up and surround yourself with a great group of guys," Golson told WPDE. "You surround yourself with good people and it takes care of itself in the end.

Golson completed 187 of 318 passes for 2,405 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. He also rushed for 298 yards and six TD's.

Golson was not asked about where he will enroll in classes for the fall and he did not say what his plans are.  He did say that he has been working out in Chicago.
