Irish sophomore Matt Hegarty has been cleared to resume full football activities starting March 15, according to his family.
Hegarty had two holes in his heart surgically repaired in December after suffering a mini-stroke a month earlier. Doctors were optimistic that Hegarty would fully recover from the surgery in time for spring football and it appears he is still on track to do so.
The 6-foot-5, 296-pound lineman is one of three players in contention to take over for Braxston Cave as the starting center for the Irish. He has been lifting with his teammates since early February and says he is back to squatting in the 500-pound range.
Hegarty will remain on medication until March 15. Doctors will take another look at his heart sometime in May to make sure there are no problems with the patches on his heart.
