    Central Connecticut Suspends 2, Including Quarterback

    (Published Monday, Nov. 20, 2017)

    The Central Connecticut Blue Devils will be without their starting quarterback for the school's first ever Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) playoff game.

    Coach Pete Rossomando has suspended junior quarterback Jacob Dolegala and junior offensive lineman David Cinti for one game because of a "violation of team policy," according to a statement from a university spokesperson.

    CCSU police said the players were charged after an officer responded to a large party Saturday night that got out of hand. Four students were arrested and face breach of peace charges.

    Dolegala just became the school's all-time leading passer in the 42-14 win over Robert Morris.

    The Blue Devils are on an 8-game win streak heading into next Saturday's playoff game against the University of New Hampshire.

    Here is the full statement from the CCSU spokesperson.

    "Central Connecticut State University officials have announced that CCSU Blue Devil Head Football Coach Pete Rossomando suspended football players Jacob Dolegala (quarterback) and David Cinti (offensive lineman) for one game for violation of team policy. They will be unavailable for any team activities this week, including the football game against the University of New Hampshire in the first round of the FCS Playoffs, scheduled for Saturday, November 25."
