Navy’s former starting QB no longer enrolled at academy

All the attention toward Navy over the past week has been linked to the sexual assault case involving three current and former football players. But the Academy is dealing with a departure as well.

According to a report from The (Annapolis, Md.) Capital this past week, former starting quarterback Trey Miller has been dismissed from the academy for what is being called an honors violation related to academics. Navy would only confirm that Miller is no longer enrolled.

“We can confirm that Midshipman Miller is no longer enrolled at the U.S. Naval Academy,” public affairs officer John Schofield told the paper. “Midshipman Miller’s disenrollment was determined through internal administrative proceedings. Midshipmen are afforded privacy in these proceedings and details are not releasable.”

Miller started the first five games of last season for the Midshipmen, but turnover problems led to him being replaced by freshman Keenan Reynolds. Miller finished the season with 399 yards passing and 293 yards rushing with five total touchdowns. He was moved to slotback this spring.

    As a former Naval Midshipman, and football player I will say this is highly embarrassing. Starting to see more Middies committing acts that you only see at other institutions. Get back to finding the kids that really want to excel and be a part of something special.

    Not to worry, willcoop62. The service academies are (by and large) stocked with some of the best our country has to offer. They are, disappointingly, beginning to look for gladiators for some of the athletic programs, similar to the standard university football factories in the NCAA. The service academies are not about national championships.

    Since he apparently cheated will we as the taxpayers that funded his education be paid back? Seems only fair to us!

    This is most disconcerting to say the least. The military academies are noted for discipline and honesty. Unfortunately this young man will pay the price for his transgression by being released by Navy. Too bad.

    @rcbn–
    That can happen under certain circumstances; there is a clause that to that effect in military scholarship contracts. However, you will not hear whether that was the case from the USNA for Midshipman Miller.

    Don’t lump Army and Air Force with these what has been going on at Annapolis. A closer exam will yield the following: last years QB….Procter was kicked out for cheating, another QB several years ago was not permitted to graduate due to sexual misconduct after being found not guilty of rape, a star fullback was dismissed from the Marine corps for cheating on his land navigation test immediately following his graduation, another star fullback was dismissed for testing positive for steroids, three players charged with rape at a house that they are not supposed to have in the first place….but allowed to play this past season. Congratulations to the navy for their on and off field accomplishments. I hope they get to play Arizona St again in a bowl game after playing their weak ass usual schedule.
