Press Conference: Mike London

Virginia coach Mike London talks with the news media. Virginia (4-6, 1-5 ACC) plays at Boston College (5-5, 3-4 ACC) on Saturday.

Opening Statement

Unfortunately I have to report on one of our captains, Ras I Dowling, who started the game and after the first couple of reps in the contest he came out with an ankle injury. We have come to find out that he fractured his ankle, so he’s done for the rest of the year.

It’s unfortunate because he’s such a great young man, a great captain and a great leader. He still has a bright football future ahead of him.

He was trying so hard to get in these games after battling injuries with his hamstring, and then there was the knee issue, and now the ankle. But just saw him a few minutes ago, and Ras I was upbeat, I mean, Ras I is prayerful and his faith is very meaningful to him. And he’s looking at this as just a tiny setback as he is moving forward.

We wish him the best in his recovery and I know he’ll be ready to for Pro Day in April.
