    Ironically, he featured prominently in the "Game of Honor" documentary.

    Sorry to see him leave under such circumstances. I wonder if he could make the roster of a pro team and earn enough to reimburse the Govt.

    Probably not with those Stats.

    Might get drafted in one of the much lower rounds, chances of making a team roster would be slim. I hear the Arena League is hiring, might take a few years to pay back that kind of money.

    He's definitely not good enough to go pro.

    Also; they could require him to serve time as enlisted instead of paying back money. An honor violation isn't something that would stop someone from enlisting and serving. Not like it was a criminal offense. time will tell.

    I know this is done but I bet the enlisted men and women are less than impressed.

    Depends on who knows. A QB on the navy team is a known "Celebrity" for lack of a better word. But someone ranked #500 out of 1000 with no significant contributions or notoriety could probably get away with a pretty low profile.

    His throwing stats are lackluster at best and his running scores aren't against the best teams. NFL defenses would catch him before he crossed the line of scrimmage. No pro ball for him.

    I wonder what he did?

    I think that serving as enlisted in lieu of payback is on its way out, especially with honor cases. I'd bet the cost of my own education he'll have to pay for his.

    At any rate, he was found in violation so good riddance.

    According to Mids that I know... this is his 3rd honor offense. 1 is unacceptable, but if in truth this is his 3rd, thank goodness he is gone. He got to close to commissioning if you ask me.

    How could this happen? Because the Naval Academy sold its soul for sports.

    Stay classy, USNA.

    If they sold their soul, where are the winning results?:confused: Navy football was last consistently good (and in a competitive conference) when?

    If his offense(s) took place before or even during football season, I would agree 100%, as it would give a lot credence to those who claim D1 football is sometimes valued above honor.

    You mean besides bowl appearances every season from 2003 to 2010, and a 10-year winning streak over Army?

    We're not talking about an SEC school here. We're talking about a school of 4000 smart kids. Not a bad football record at all.

    given the length of an honor investigation, and assuming this was his 3rd, there is no way at least one could not have taken place while he was a player.

    The first part was a joke.

    Army football is even worse and has been for a while

    3-7 bowl record in last 10 years against so-so teams

    INDEPENDENT league

    Of course they aren't SEC (USNA is not easy to get into obviously) but if they sold their soul you would think they could compete in an actual league. Check out their yearly schedule, 2-3 decent teams maybe.

    But anyways like I said it was a joke and not intended to start a football focused thread.

    One honor violation is bad enough, but three?? They'd better not cut him any slack because he played football. Other mids have been dropped from USNA and NROTC for less serious reasons and were handed a bill by the Navy instead of being allowed to serve.

    I didn't like his interviews during A Game of Honor. I chalked that up to him just being hyped up about football and bad on camera. Sucks that there was more to it.

    Roger Staubach would be rolling over in his grave, if he weren't still alive.

    Navy QB resigns....

    I am a big Navy fan, but this is unacceptable. Sounds to me, he wasn't who we thought he was. This is a real black eye for USNA. He can kiss his future good-bye.

    I just remember the end of GoH

    Proctor's mom interviewing at the end of the movie, it was quite poignant. This kid had a flight slot and was about to graduate. I feel for his family - they seem like good people.

    According to the link he will pay at least a portion of the costs.
    In the end, he like every USNA mid, and every SA cadet knew the regs. He signed on a dotted line, he had a choice to abide by that legal contract or place his needs/wants/desires above the military. Flight slot or not, he decided he mattered more.

    I have no pity for him, he chose poorly, call it youth or ignorance, however you call it there 1000 other mids in his class that chose wisely when tempted. I feel for his parents because of their son's actions.
