West Va. Football Players Kicked Off Team After Being Stabbed


Two West Virginia University football players were dismissed from the team after breaking team rules. Most college coaches do not make team rules available to the public so there is no way to know which rule was broken as of now.

Coach Dana Holgorsen announced the decision on Monday night, after both players were released from the hospital after being stabbed on Sunday morning.

Redshirt freshman defensive end Tyree Owens and walk-on running back Kenyatta Greene, were released from the hospital on Sunday night after receiving stab wounds from a 22-year old basketball player from DII University Alderson Broaddus.

“Due to a violation of team rules, Tyree Owens and Kenyatta Greene are no longer part of the football team,” WVU associate athletic director Michael Fragale said in a statement. “We are appreciative of the efforts of the Morgantown Police Department and thankful that those identified will make a full recovery.”

Colston had left the scene when police responded to a call reporting a fight after midnight on Sunday. Upon arriving on the scene, Morgantown police say they found Owens, Greene and another man suffering stab wounds. The police found and arrested Colston on three charges of malicious wounding on Monday without incident, The Dominion Post reports.
