From UT:


University of Texas pitcher Kevin Roliard is dealing with personal issues and is not with the Longhorns Baseball team at this time, head coach David Pierce said on Friday. A freshman from Spring, Texas (Klein HS), Roliard has played in five games this season.


Statement from Kevin Roliard’s parents Brenda and Larry:


“Our son has been dealing with some personal issues, and on Sunday night was hospitalized with an injury. We truly appreciate those who came to his aid and are thankful that Kevin is on the road to recovery. We appreciate the many well wishes we’ve received, and we hope you’ll continue to keep Kevin in your thoughts and prayers. We also ask that everyone recognizes this is a very difficult time for our family and will continue to respect our privacy.”



Statement from Texas Baseball Head Coach David Pierce:


“Kevin has been a big part of the 2017 team since his arrival on campus back in the fall. We’ve been in constant contact with his family this week and have been to the hospital to visit Kevin. The Roliards are all members of our Longhorn Baseball family, and we will do everything we can to support all of them during this difficult time. Our coaches, players and support staff are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers, and I hope everyone will do the same.”



Statement from Texas Men’s Athletics Director Mike Perrin:


“We were made aware of the injury involving our baseball student-athlete Kevin Roliard on Sundaynight, and it’s a very unfortunate situation. Coach Pierce and I have visited the hospital and talked with his family. Our baseball team was made aware, and they and any other members of our athletics community are being provided with access to counseling and support. Our thoughts are with Kevin, his health and well-being and his family as he recovers. Out of respect for them, we won’t be able to say anything further at this time and hope everyone will honor their wishes of privacy.”
