QB Jack Elway leaves ASU football programPosted: Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Jack Elway, the son of Denver Broncos Hall of Famer John Elway, will leave the Arizona State football program, the school confirmed Tuesday.
However, Elway plans to remain a student at the school.
Sun Devils coach Dennis Erickson told The Arizona Republic on Monday, "He's just tired of football and wants to do something else with his life."
Elway, a redshirt freshman quarterback, didn't play in a scrimmage last weekend, the Republic reported.
"He would have played here eventually," Erickson told the paper.
Elway was a standout quarterback at Cherry Creek High School in Englewood, Colo., before picking Arizona State.
His father played at Stanford before leading the Broncos to back-to-back Super Bowl titles.
