East Carolina has suspended three freshmen for shooting a firearm within city limits.
Linebacker Yiannis Bowden, receiver Curtis Burston and linebacker Markel Winters were suspended indefinitely from the team Tuesday after coach Ruffin McNeill was informed by the Greenville Police Department that the players had fired a BB gun, according to a statement by ECU.
All three of the players involved have not seen playing time yet as they have been on the scout team.
“One of the benchmarks of our program is that our players will be held accountable for their actions on and off the field, in the classroom and in the community,” McNeill said in a press release. “It is with this commitment in mind that I have suspended these individuals indefinitely for their actions that were irresponsible and dangerous. They have acknowledged their mistake, and now part of our job is to help them learn from this situation.”
USF will host ECU at Raymond James Stadium at 7 p.m. Saturday. The game will be broadcast on ESPNU.
