Football Player Escorted from Wednesday Practice by Marist Security

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. — Two Marist security officers escorted at least one football player out of Tenney Stadium during their practice Wednesday morning.

Two football players and an additional unidentified student were seen meeting with Assistant Dean of Student Affairs Pat Cordner and Director of Student Conduct Matthew McMahon Wednesday afternoon before again being escorted into the back seats of another Marist vehicle.

Both Assistant Athletic Director Mike Ferraro and Director of Safety and Security John Blaisdell declined to comment.

The incident comes just before the Red Foxes’ two most important games against #4 Drake University and #1 University of San Diego. Marist is on the outside looking for a playoff berth, currently third in the PFL with a 5-1 in-conference record.
