‘No, I’m not in this game’: Student accused of playing college game says ‘I’m not interested’
The college student accused of trying to sneak into the game, and for the most part, the college, to play has been a source of embarrassment for some students and a source for embarrassment for others.
“It’s not what I wanted to do, but I had no choice,” said the 16-year-old, who asked to be identified only by his first name, Zach.
His brother, Caleb, also plays, and Caleb says he had no idea his brother was even on campus.
They went to the dorms on Monday and Tuesday, but the boys were not allowed to come inside.
“There was a lot of drama in there and the other dorms were not as accommodating,” Caleb said.
But the problem was not confined to dorms.
Caleb said his brother and friends were not welcome in the dorm room next door, as well as a separate area where his mother was staying.
The boys said they were kicked out of their dorm room after Caleb was arrested and charged with trespassing and violating curfew rules.
He was released on $10,000 bail and is due back in court on December 8.
Caleb says he is still waiting to hear from the college about what happened, and his lawyer is hoping to find a way to have the charges dropped.
This is the third time Caleb has been in trouble with the school.
In January, he was arrested for trespassing at the same college and suspended for three weeks.
Last month, Caleb’s mother, who has been battling a terminal illness, was arrested at her home and charged.
While his brother has played for the team for a year, Caleb said he was not in the team, but is still on the team roster.
When the incident with Caleb first happened, he said he felt betrayed.
As he told ABC News, “I felt like I was playing for someone that had nothing to do with me.
I felt like the other guy was not on my side, and I felt the need to prove to myself that I was not.””
He is my hero,” Caleb added.
Despite his efforts, he says he has not received an apology from the school or his family.
For Caleb, the incident is proof that, even in a world where so much is at stake, there is still a place for the underdog.
