Another BYU Football Player Withdraws After Honor Code Violation

PROVO, UTAH -- Another BYU football player has left the school because of honor code violations. Sophomore kick returner Jaron Dabney, who averaged 23.6 yards per return during the season that just ended, withdrew from BYU last week, becoming the fifth starting player in the last year to leave or be expelled from the school.

Dabney had run into both honor code and academic trouble in the past. In 1998 he missed a season because of his academic performance, and the year before that he was on honor code probation for a shoplifting arrest.

When he returned last fall, Dabney said that his absence had helped turn him around, "God showed me I need to be more responsible and take care of the important things in my life," he said at that time.

The four other starters with honor code trouble since last January were: running back Junior Mahe and safety Tyson Smith, both of whom will return to the team in the fall; running back Ronney Jenkins, who transferred to Northern Arizona, and cornerback Heshimu Robertson, who completed eligibility at the end of this past season after returning to the team.
