The Swift Current Broncos had to say goodbye to both Shea Howorko and Brent Benson this summer as concussions forced them to retire early from the game they love. I had a chat with Howorko about that today and wrote this story about it. You can also hear the interview here…

I just want to wish both Shea and Brent the best of luck in the next steps in their life and more important than that I hope they get back to as close to 100% health as they can. I hate to hear that Shea is still suffering from symptoms and hope that he finds relief ASAP. I know a friend who went through something similar and while it was a long battle he eventually was himself again.

I also wrote a story on the likely arrival of Julius Honka to the Broncos that you can check out here.
