I read the other day on the GA State site that something was up with him. He hasn't played yet so he could still end up playing somewhere this year. He was at Coastal Carolina when GA State called him. Maybe he will go back there. School just started.

Kicked off the team

that sounds so harsh - what in the world did he do to get "kicked off"?

Sad news

Don't know what happened but this is sad news. I have watched this kid grow up on and off the field for some years and always thought highly of him, and his family for that matter. Football may not be in the cards right now for him but hopefully he still does what matters most and focuses on his education, if not at Georgia State, somewhere.

There are Rules

There are rules and he must learn that he is not in high school. Education school always be the focuse point, there is always someone better then him. Coaches are getting feed up with rude and disrespectful athlete of all type. From the one's who make the big money to the high school kids. Coaches are wanting kids with desire against kids who think they are so great.
He need to learn the First rule, "Respect will get you a long way."
