Notre Dame Football Update: Golson issues statement
Suspended Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson issued a statementthrough the University Sunday. The following is the text of thatstatement:
Dear Notre Dame Community,
I have been informed by the University of Notre Dame that due to mypoor academic judgment that I have been suspended from the Universityfor the 2013 Fall Term.
I take full responsibility for my poor choices and will do all that isasked of me to regain the trust of my family, friends, teammates,coaches and the entire Notre Dame community.
I chose to attend Notre Dame because of its mission to develop me bothon and off the football field.
My parents and the community I grew up in have instilled values in methat have and will continue to allow me to be successful in thefuture. There have been many lessons learned as I worked to become thestarting quarterback at Notre Dame and each was a result of CoachKelly's belief in me as an athlete and a person.
At this point, I understand how my integrity could be in question butI want to reassure my supporters that through this experience I willreturn a better student athlete as well as a better individual.
Lastly, I want to thank the University of Notre Dame for theopportunity already granted and also the opportunity going forth toregain my eligibility in the winter of 2014.
