Redwoods’ attackman Jules Heninburg will be exiting the PLL Bubble just one day after players arrived due to health concerns. Heningburg announced the news in a statement posted to his Twitter account on Monday afternoon.
During cardiology test in Utah, it was ruled that Heningburg, who tested positive for COVID-19 in June, was at high risk for cardiac arrest under high-intensity training, according to the statement posted on Twitter.
“I have been training for a month ver hard, unaware that my heart and body could have failed me at any moment,” Heningburg said in a statement on social media. “This offseason with everything that has happened, leading up to now, I want nothing more than to be out there on the field with my teammates and playing for something greater than myself.”
A graduate of Rutgers, Heningburg led Redwoods in scoring last season with 33 points (21G/12A). He was also top five in the league in both scoring and points. He was expected to be a huge piece of the Redwoods’ offense again this season, as they looked to make it back to the championship game, where they lost to Whipsnakes at the end of the 2019 season.
