Chip Towers is reporting that UGA recruit Christian LeMay received a 30 day suspension for a violation of school rules at the end of the school year. The kid's father Stacy LeMay says they plan to appeal the ruling and insists the eventual outcome will not impact his son's ability to enroll at UGA and play for the Bulldogs.
If the suspension is upheld, it appears LeMay would enroll in a private school rather than spend the first 30 days of the school year (and subsequently miss the start of the football season) in a Charlotte-Mecklenburg alternative school.
Butler HS is preparing to defend their state title and must do so without their all-star QB as he is not allowed to practice with the team. I won't pretend to know all of the details or be privy to the ins and outs of CMS disciplinary policy. But the facts are that LeMay received the maximum possible discipline for his infraction and he has never (ever) been in trouble before.
Like a plot twist taken straight from a Friday Night Lights' script...the pressure on the disciplinary committee will be (and likely has been) intense to show leniency on a star that is burning bright for the community. Or else, lose him to another school.
