There are many things you can do to be considered a good teammate. First of all, you can support your teammates both on and off the field. Help them with any problems they may be having, or, if you're a senior and they're an underclassmen, show them the ropes of what it takes to succeed in college. What you shouldn't do is attack your teammate in the locker room and send him to the hospital.
Which is apparently what a pair of former Louisville football players did last season. Isaac Geffrad and Jacob Geffrad, twin brothers, were charged with assault in November, and the details of the case are just now coming out.
Police reports call it a violent attack that caused serious physical injury. According to the arrest slip, former football players and twin brothers Isaac and Jacob Geffrad were charged in November, but the documents describing what happened have just been released.
The brothers are accused of attacking Patrick Grant while he was sitting in the football locker room at Cardinal stadium after practice.
Grant was taken to the hospital with fractured bones in his face.Grant had to have two surgeries following the attack, one to repair the bone structure around his eye socket, and a second to save his sight in his left eye. Neither Jacob or Isaac are still listed on the Louisville roster, and a team spokesman says that both players were kicked off the team shortly after the incident occurred.
