More bad news out of Shreveport for Jackets fans. Days after four players were ruled ineligible due to academic issues, three players will miss the first half on Monday against Air Force for missing curfew. The three players -- senior OLB Anthony Egbuniwe, junior DB Michael Peterson, and freshman DB Louis Young -- all contributed this year and their absence will definitely have an impact on the first half of play.
Egbuniwe transitioned from defensive end to outside linebacker in Al Groh's 3-4 defense and started all 12 games this season. One of the emotional leaders on the team, the senior tallied the fifth most tackles on the season with 59 and had 3 tackles for a loss. Louis Young is listed in the two-deep and been a top reserve all season, while Peterson has seen time at corner and played on special teams.
