USF senior offensive lineman Zach Hermann, the most experienced lineman on the team with 26 career starts, has decided to quit playing football.

Hermann has missed most of spring practice due to a lingering neck injury.

Hermann returned to practice on Monday but was not at practice on Wednesday.

USF coach Skip Holtz said Hermann and his family have informed team trainers that due to concerns over a bulging disc in his neck, the 6-foot-3, 315-pound Hermann has decided to give up football for medical reasons.

I’ll post another practice report later this evening.
