Penn State QB Sacca may quit

September 20, 1993|By Knight-Ridder News Service

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Sounding dispirited and grimly determined, Penn State quarterback John Sacca said yesterday that there is a "very strong possibility" he will no longer be with the undefeated Nittany Lions when they take the field against Rutgers on Saturday night.

Sacca, a fourth-year junior, said that if he quits the team, he also would leave the university and try to resume his football career elsewhere, even though he would be unable to transfer to another Division I-A school.

"I doubt that I'll be at practice [today]," Sacca said. "I just don't think I've gotten the proper respect I deserve here. Right now, that's the way I see things happening."

Sacca, whose brother Tony established several school passing records in his four-year career at Penn State, was replaced by Kerry Collins early in the second quarter of the Lions' 31-0 win over Iowa on Saturday in Iowa City.
