Seven players suspended

  "Our players admitted their mistake and we will help them learn from it," NC State coach Dave Doeren said.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State football head coach Dave Doeren has announced that seven student-athletes will be suspended from Saturday's contest against Louisville, following a game with BB guns at their off-campus residence last week.

Those student-athletes include Johnathan Alston, Jerod Fernandez, Josh Jones, Justin Jones, Pharoah McKever, Jumichael Ramos and Mike Stevens. Additionally, redshirt student-athletes Tyler Jones, Kalen McCain, Deyshawn Middleton, Terronne Prescod and Maurice Trowell have been placed on team probation.

"These are good young men who made a mistake in not recognizing that this activity could have resulted in someone being injured," Doeren said. "We have discussed this with them and they understand that they are being held responsible for their actions. The information was referred to the university's office of student conduct as well. Our players admitted their mistake and we will help them learn from it."

There will be no further comment about the incident.
