Kriss Proctor, Navy’s starting quarterback last season, will not graduate from the Naval Academy. Proctor has submitted his resignation from the academy, a school spokesman confirmed to The Capital.
Proctor’s resignation has not been processed, but is likely to be approved.
“Midshipman Proctor has submitted a resignation that is currently under review,” said Commander William Marks, Public Information Officer at the Naval Academy.
An inside source at the academy with knowledge of the situation told The Capital that Proctor’s resignation comes on the heels of an alleged honor code violation. The source said Proctor knew that academy officials were going to hold him accountable for the alleged transgression.
Marks could not comment on a possible honor violation due to privacy rules.
Proctor played in 22 games during his career, making 14 starts and rushing for 1,441 yards. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound product of Big Bear High (Cal.) started two games in place of injured starter Ricky Dobbs as a sophomore then appeared in eight games with one start as a junior.
Proctor started all 11 games in which he played as a senior and led the team in rushing and scoring with 914 yards and 14 touchdowns. The left-handed thrower also completed 52 of 103 passes for 787 yards and seven touchdowns in earning honorable mention selection to the All-Independent Schools team.
Navy head football coach Ken Niumatalolo was out of town and unavailable for comment.
Proctor will likely be required to reimburse the United States Navy for a portion of his educational costs.
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.
