At age 17, Emeka Megwa was a highly recruited running back out of Fort Worth, Texas. After suffering an ACL injury in high school play, he enrolled at UW over other prominent football programs specifically because UW assured him that the team could manage his rehabilitation. The lawsuit alleges that after Jimmy Lake’s coaching staff left the program, new staff and trainers ignored the recovery plan set by surgeons and repeatedly pushed Emeka in workouts beyond the limits of his recovery, by giving him painkillers and publicly ridiculing him.

Every case is different and results depend on their specific circumstances. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
