Faced with about a half-season suspension or playing for a private school, Christian LeMay has decided to sit out his entire senior season.
LeMay threw for over 3000 yards and 44 TDs last season as he led Butler to its first state title. He's the prized commitment of Coach Richt's 2011 class.
However, it still remains unclear as to how LeMay's suspension from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will affect his future enrollment even though Mr. LeMay has reiterated that Coach Richt is standing behind his scholarship offer.
The AJCs Chip Towers has the full LeMay Family statement, which concludes:
Christian will now prepare himself for the next season of his life as he takes this time to become stronger spiritually, academically and physically. With the help of fitness trainer Andy Hendel of CrossFit Charlotte and quarterback coach Steve Calhoun of Armed and Dangerous, Christian will certainly be prepared to arrive in Georgia this spring ready to compete. We are fully confident that his best days are still yet to come. GO BULLDOGS!!!
