Several Howard Football Players Face Suspension for Nation’s Classic, Additional Games
The Washington Post today reports that up to 14 Howard University football players may be suspended for the Bison season opener against Morehouse College in the Nation’s Classic. Some players may miss up to three games, all related to the ongoing investigation into textbook allowance scandal that forced the brief suspension of all HU athletic teams in March.
(HU Head Football Coach Gary) Harrell said the list of ineligible players could include sophomore quarterback Greg McGhee, the reigning Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference rookie of the year, and senior linebacker Keith Pough, the MEAC preseason defensive player of the year. If McGhee were to miss time, Harrell said quarterback duties would fall to junior Randy Liggins Jr. and freshman Jamie Cunningham.
