Olamide Zaccheaus had to quit. Things had gotten out of hand — he was addicted.
In a way, the addiction wasn’t unexpected. Zaccheaus, a senior wide receiver at Virginia, admitted to “an addictive nature.” And “anything I do,” he added, “I want to be the best at it.” Even this?
He wasn’t going to bed at a reasonable hour. It was consuming his time. And worst of all: Zaccheaus found his new craving was affecting his development as a football player.
