Less than a week after quarterback Shane Dillon decided to end his Buffalo career to pursue basketball another Colorado signal caller is calling it quits for something other than football. Third-year sophomore John Schrock (Phil, he has been freed in a totally wrong way) is leaving the team to to place his focus elsewhere.
"It was a tough decision for John as he does love football, but we talked and he is serious about becoming a doctor," MacIntyre said. "He decided it was in his best interests to leave the team to concentrate on his academics. He is a fine young man and I think he will be successful in his pursuits."
Schrock was a walk-on from Kansas City that hadn't seen a whole lot of playing time, he played in two games last season completing the only pass he attempted, but had an opportunity to make a move on the depth chart this coming year. During four scrimmages this spring, Schrock went 13-for-22 for 124 yards and two interceptions.
The move leaves the Buffs with only four healthy quarterbacks heading into fall practice and two of them have yet to participate in an official activity with the team. Connor Wood is widely expected to start at the position in Mike MacIntyre's first year with Stevie Joe Dorman, Jordan Gehrke and true freshman Sefo Liufau battling for the back-up spot. Jordan Webb is expected to return to the team at some point this fall after a spring injury but isn't expected to be a factor due to the time missed and an offseason arrest.
Good luck to John in all of his future pursuits.
