MEAC Announces Suspensions Following FAMU-NCAT Altercation

NORFOLK, Va. The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) has announced the suspension of three student-athletes following an altercation involving the North Carolina A&T State and Florida A&M football teams on Sunday. 

 

Following a thorough review of video footage and the referee’s report, two student-athletes from Florida A&M (Cameron Sapp, Jalen Brayboy) and one student-athlete from North Carolina A&T State (Stephen Davis) violated conference policy concerning the role of student-athletes and sportsmanship, which reads, in part, “Student-athletes are expected to treat opponents with respect. They must be aware significant penalties will be applied for fighting, taunting an opponent, or other unethical conduct.”

 

Thus, the Florida A&M student-athletes have been suspended for the Rattlers’ next game, which is this Saturday at Morgan State. Davis is suspended for the Aggies’ home game on Saturday against Howard.

 

“We expect our student-athletes and coaches to demonstrate good sportsmanship before, during and after games,” MEAC Commissioner Dr. Dennis E. Thomas said.
