From USA Today online, the Washington Huskies star tight end, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, was suspended from the football team after his weekend DUI arrest.
According to head coach Steve Sarkisian, the football star will be immediately suspended from all team activities while the university completes its investigation. This most likely means that Mr. Seferian-Jenkins will not be able to finish spring football.
After Tuesday practice, head coach Steve Sarkisian released a brief statement. Sarkisian said the university “will make the decisions necessary based on our team rules and our school’s policies that are fair to him and fair to us, and we will move forward and we will support him,”
According to the Seattle police, the suspect was involved in a one-car accident Saturday night. Officers found the suspect outside his car, disheveled, with a bloody nose and he showed signs of being impaired. He was then arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.
Austin made second-team All-PAC Ten honors last year after his 69-catch, 850 yard performance. Only a junior, he is already his school’s all-time reception leader for tight ends. He is also a finalist for the Mackey award, given annually to the nation’s top tight end.
As of the time of this writing, Austin’s punishment is unknown. However it is a safe bet that he will be on the field August for his team opener.
