Trae Elston says he’s sorry. It’s right here:
I want to apologize for my behavior. It was inappropriate and showed lack of respect to my family and to the Ole Miss community. I realize
that I am a role model to some and I'm sorry for stepping out of my character this week
It’s a nice gesture for a guy who hasn’t been in trouble before. Elston will have some unspoken football work to complete to get back to being a team member in good standing, assuming Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze follows the discipline action plan he has with other players.
Elston figures to be one of the leaders in the secondary next year. This isn’t a good start, and he’ll have to work his way into leadership standing as well.
Elston wasn’t the only player arrested this week.
So was transfer wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow, who had a brush with the law at Washington.
The events of this week are an unfortunate beginning for Stringfellow, who is making his fresh start at Ole Miss after leaving Seattle.
A consensus four-star recruit with 20 catches as a Huskies true freshman, if Stringfellow is focused and living within the rules of society and team he can be a big part of the Ole Miss offense in 2015.
