Butler High quarterback Christian LeMay, one of the nation's top college football recruits, could miss more than half of the 2010 regular season.
Thursday, June 10, 2010
LeMay is accused of breaking a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools' code of conduct rule, which could bring an out-of-school suspension that could last up to 30 days, sources said. He has a hearing Monday at the CMS East Learning Center.
CMS starts classes on Aug. 25. A 30-day suspension would keep LeMay off the field until October. Butler is scheduled to play 11 regular-season games. Seven are before an Oct. 15 game at Ardrey Kell.
LeMay, who has committed to Georgia, is generally considered one of the nation's top three recruits at quarterback. National recruiting website MaxPreps, which named LeMay its national junior of the year last season, ranks LeMay the No. 12 overall player in the class of 2011.
LeMay threw for more than 3,000 yards and 44 touchdowns with only two interceptions last season, leading Butler to a N.C. 4AA championship. The Bulldogs are ranked No. 2 nationally in preseason by MaxPreps.
Reached by phone Thursday night, Butler coach Mike Newsome and LeMay's father, Stacy, declined comment.
