Army quarterback Trent Steelman had an unspecified honor code violation recently, but is expected to start the season with the rest of the Black Knights on Sept. 4 at Eastern Michigan, according to a report by the Times Herald-Record.
A cadet honor board recommended discretion for the violation, rather than separation, the paper said.
“To be honest, it’s helped me on the field, just dealing with adversity because being put in that situation, it brings every type of challenge there is in life,” Steelman, a sophomore, told the paper. “For me to go through that, it did. It helped me grow as a person, a football player and a leader. We have to understand that it’s something bigger than football. That’s what it’s going to prepare us for being a leader when it counts the most.”
Steelman started every game at quarterback for West Point last season. Army coach Rich Ellerson told the paper that no team-enforced suspension is expected.
