  09/30/22 - FB Brant KuitherSr/2025, Utah

  Despite the season-ending ACL tear he suffered last Saturday in the Utah Utes' win over the Arizona State Sun Devils, tight end Brant Kuithe made his weekly appearance on the "Bill Riley Show" in Salt Lake City by phone on Tuesday, and naturally the injury was the topic of conversation. "I'm doing all right," Kuithe said at the top, noting that swelling in his knee has to go down before the surgery to repair it can take place. Despite suffering a leg injury in high school, Kuithe said this is the first time he will have to undergo surgery. "It's all new to me, but trying to embrace it as much as I can and trying to stay positive," he said. "It's really the only thing I can do at this moment." Kuithe said that on the play in which he got injured (the last of the first quarter), he made the catch and in an attempt to make the ASU defender miss, he tried to spin.

As soon as he started to make a cut, he heard a pop. In a lighthearted moment, he said, "I still made him miss, which I guess I could say that I made someone miss with a torn ACL." Nevertheless, he knew something had happened and he tried to get to the sideline as soon as he could. Kuithe said that in a sense, the fact that he can't do anything to change what happened is helping him have a positive outlook about the recovery road ahead. "I kind of have a new perspective on football right now and trying to figure out what I need to do and how I can help this team without being on the field," he said. "Everything's all new and trying to take it one step at a time." He also said he realized quickly that as unfortunate as it is, "I'm alive, you know? Like, I can't sit there and try to think that this is the end of the world, 'cause it's not. "Yeah, I'm missing a season, whatever. I'm not sure what's going to happen down the road (in terms of staying in school or trying to go to the NFL), but at least I'm still alive and I'm breathin' and I still have an opportunity to go play again. It's just another bump in the road, some adversity I have to go through." - Deseret News
