Quarterback dismissed for violating team rules
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Missouri State quarterback Trevor Wooden, who led the Missouri Valley Football Conference in total offense last season, has been dismissed from the team for violating unspecified team rules.
Coach Terry Allen said Thursday that it was a difficult decision made in the best interest of the program.
Wooden, of High Springs, Fla., was suspended for the opener against Arkansas last year for a separate violation of team rules. He produced 2,420 yards in total offense his lone season as starter as a sophomore after starting 10 games at wide receiver as a redshirt freshman the previous year.
The dismissal leaves the school with two scholarship quarterbacks, sophomore Kierra Harris of Texarkana, Ark., and freshman Brodie Lambert of Arlington, Texas.
