Troy University head football coach Larry Blakeney announced today that defensive back Jorrick Calvin, a senior from Baton Rouge, La., has been declared academically ineligible for the 2009 season, pending appeal.

“This is an unfortunate situation for our football program,” Blakeney said. “We are going to continue to work hard to prepare for this season and I am sure that some other players will step up to help us be the best that we can be.

“We are going to continue to support Jorrick as he works to complete his degree here at Troy University,” Blakeney said.

The Trojans will return to practice on Saturday morning with a 10:30 a.m. special teams scrimmage before turning their attention toward preparation for the opening game against Bowling Green on Sunday evening.
