Julius entering facility

From Mirror reports

Penn State kicker Joey Julius announced Friday that he has entered a treatment facility once again for an eating disorder, which is the reason why he was not with the football team for the Blue-White Game two weeks ago.

Julius became a national sensation last season after he delivered several vicious hits on return men who were bringing back kickoffs. He revealed during the season that he had been in a treatment center for an eating disorder last spring.

Julius on Friday wrote a lengthy post on Facebook updating his situation:

“Hello friends and family. I just wanted to let everyone know since I have been asked a bunch why I was not at blue white or why I am not at school. I have been struggling over the last couple months with my eating disorder. It got to the point where I had to return to St. Louis to seek further treatment at the McCallum Place.

“Recovery is a wonderful and beautiful thing that I am working on returning too. For anyone out there that has similar struggles I hope you too can seek help in some way. Your feelings should be completely validated and I wish you all the best in your search for recovery.

“Just as an update I am doing well and the treatment is helping. There is light at the end of the tunnel. It is just a very long tunnel. For my friends and family I would love to hear how you are doing and I am ready to talk to you guys. I love getting letters and have found some peace in writing them as well.”
