Defensive end walks away from Vanderbilt football team

Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 8:09pm

Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson said that junior defensive end Theron Kadri has left the football team.

Johnson called it a personal decision and said Kadri informed him prior to Tuesday’s workout. Johnson added that he had no insight into the player’s plans for the future.

“All I can say is that it is an opportunity for guys like Teriall Brannon, Josh Jelesky, Walker May and Tim Fugger to step up and help this program,” Johnson said.

Kadri, from Brighton, Tenn., played in 11 games last season and started the regular-season finale against Wake Forest. He had a career-high 19 tackles.

It must be terribly hard to be in such a priviledged environment when you are just a teen, and not from that world. Hopefully, he has his head on straight and will find who he is and what his other talents are.
