Former Los Gatos star medically retires from Notre Dame football

Former Los Gatos High star Will Schweitzer announced on Wednesday that he is retiring as an active player on the Notre Dame football team as a result of a congenital heart condition called Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO).

Schweitzer, a linebacker, suffered what he described in a social-media post as “a non-football related medical event” in September caused by the heart issue.

“By the grace of God, I have made a full recovery,” Schweitzer, a 2021 Los Gatos graduate, wrote in a Twitter post. “However, after careful consideration with my family, doctors and coaches, we have decided it is best for me to step down from an active player role.

“I will remain a member of the Notre Dame football family in a supporting role, and continue to pursue my degree from the Mendoza College of Business.”

Schweitzer thanked family, friends, coaches and teammates for their support.

“Being part of one of the greatest sports teams in the world is a dream come true,” he added. “The brotherhood that I have with my teammates is something that I will hold dear forever.”

Schweitzer appeared in three games as a freshman in 2021, against Navy, Georgia Tech and Stanford. He was credited with a tackle against Georgia Tech, Notre Dame’s home finale that season.

He did not play in a game last fall because of injuries, according to 247Sports.
