Troubles follow Perrilloux to Jacksonville State

Jacksonville State head football coach Jack Crowe announced today that senior quarterback Ryan Perrilloux has been suspended for the season-opener against Georgia Tech for violation of team rules.

“Due to an incident that occurred during the spring, Ryan has been suspended for the first game against Georgia Tech,” Crowe said. “This is not the result of any legal circumstances and is strictly a violation of the strict guidelines he came here under.

“We have not made a different set of rules for Ryan,” said Crowe. “He has the same consequences as any one of our players and there is very little room for error. I do not think this is a reflection of his accountability since he has been here. Our fans do not need to assume more than it is, which is a team rule.

“Since the incident, Ryan has demonstrated his responsibility to this team and this University. I expect this to just be a one-time incident. This does not change his role as the quarterback on this football team and he will start the game against Florida State,” said Crowe. “I fully expect him to have an outstanding senior season.”

Jacksonville State opens the 2009 season at Georgia Tech on Sept. 5 in Atlanta.
