QB Jack Elway leaves ASU football program

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.
