For an undisclosed reason, the Air Force Academy has
yanked sophomore Jaleel Awini
from good standing, meaning the football team's current starting quarterback appears to be done for the season.
Awini has actually been subbing for starting quarterback Kale Pearson
, who suffered a knee injury about a month ago.
As usual, the academy wouldn't give any of the particulars, instead issuing a terse news release:
U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. - Air Force Academy Cadet 3rd Class (C3C) Jaleel Awini is no longer a cadet in good standing and is not allowed to represent the Academy in any outside activities, effective immediately.
Cadets must meet Academy standards — honor, physical fitness, academics and military aptitude in order to be a cadet in good standing. Holding each cadet to these high standards promotes good order and discipline throughout the institution.
