Gardner-Webb loses linebacker to injury

Boiling Springs, NC ( – Gardner-Webb will be without All-Big
South Conference linebacker Chad Geter for the remainder of the season because
of an undisclosed injury.

Geter, from Irmo, South Carolina, was the team’s leading tackler in its first
three games, but he did not dress for Gardner-Webb’s 43-36 win over Wofford
last Saturday.

The 6-foot-2, 238-pound junior is expected to return for the 2015 season and
the school said he plans to apply for a medical redshirt to try to regain
another season of eligibility.

Geter has 23 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, a sack, an interception and one
quarterback pressure this season. In 25 career games, he has collected 135
tackles, including 14.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks.

Gardner-Webb (2-2) already has played all four games without another injured
linebacker, Tanner Burch.
