Monrovia running back Kurt Scoby won’t participate in team activities until summer in order to focus on academics, according to Wildcats head coach Ryan Maddox.
Many of you were wondering why Scoby was a spectator last Saturday as Monrovia competed in the Charter Oak Tournament. The senior-to-be has decided to shun football for the classroom until later this summer.
Scoby’s decision is not expected to impact his chances of being the Wildcats’ feature back. Monrovia is loaded at running back with the return of Darion Jones and two up-and-coming prospects in Cameron Johnson and Anthony Marquez, who will both be sophomores.
“He’s in the process of getting everything squared away grades-wise,” Maddox said. “He’s in good standing. He wanted to focus on his education and focus on getting into a Division I college.
“He’ll join us in the summer. Kurt will make the adjustments and know what he’s doing. He’ll be just fine.”
