Two Fresno State players dismissed

Victor Dean

Early last September, wide receiver Victor Dean and defensive back Davon Dunn were two of six Fresno State players suspended for various lengths of time for various issues.

While both returned during the 2012 season, the same can’t be said for 2013.

In a very brief press release sent out Tuesday evening night, the Bulldogs announced that both players have been dismissed from the football program for what’s described as “violations of Athletic Department policy.”  Suffice to say, the specific nature of the issue or issues weren’t revealed.

The release stated that each player was informed of their dismissals Monday morning, and that there would be no further comment from the team.

Despite playing in just nine games because of a combination of the disciplinary issue and a season-ending injury, the 6-6, 209-pound Dean finished fourth on the team in receiving yards with 389 and fifth with 30 receptions.  He added two touchdown receptions as a redshirt sophomore as well.

Dunn played in 11 of the Bulldogs’ 13 games as a redshirt sophomore, with the two games he missed due to his suspension.  He was credited with 16 tackles, 1.5 tackles for a loss and a half sack, as well as returning eight kickoffs for a 20.2 yard average.

    Across the Country, ”college football schools’ have been suspending, and dismissing players from the team, in quantities, for many common reasons. It’s for these common reasons, that some day soon, the light bulb might turn on in the heads of both coaches and Athletic Directors, to start looking into the character and associates/pals of these non-student jocks.
    The hand writing is on the wall, that the behavior, and lack of discipline exhibited by these players did not begin on campus, but grew and was enriched within their households and neighborhoods….which means, family and friends.
    BACKGROUND checks, with detailed interviews, should be done. Those not interested in the classroom part of college, should NEVER be considered. Once a bum, always a bum !!
    WAKE UP, Ath. Depts.
