Furman players suspended for grand larceny charge
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Two Furman football players have been suspended indefinitely after they were charged with stealing a tent, coach Bobby Lamb said.
Sudderth was also charged with possession of a controlled substance after police found a small amount of marijuana in his vehicle, police said.
"We're very disappointed in the events that took place last Thursday involving Isaac and Willis and the impact their behavior has had on our football program and the university community," Lamb said Tuesday. "We expect Furman student-athletes to be great citizens and to understand how their actions affect their teammates and others."
Last season, West caught 39 passes for 708 yards and had seven touchdowns despite missing three games with a fractured collarbone. Sudderth earned his second all-conference honor in 2002 after catching eight passes for 103 yards and a touchdown.
Both players, recently named to the preseason All-Southern Conference squad, have applied for a program for nonviolent first offenders.
