The N.C. A&T football program has suffered an unexpected loss this spring, starting quarterback Kwashaun Quick.
Quick is no longer on the team because of a violation of team rules and is no longer in school, a team spokesman says. He did not participate in the Aggies’ spring game Saturday.
Quick was arrested in Durham on March 6 and charged with maintaining a vehicle or residence with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver marijuana and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
He has a court date May 5 in Durham County.
The Aggies earned a share of the MEAC championship last season in large part because of Quick’s versatility under center.
He finished as the team’s second-leading rusher and leading passer, accounting for 2,028 total yards of offense and 19 total touchdowns.

Also missing from A&T’s team during the spring game were Hassah Klugh, a backup quarterback who left the team on his own, and Marquell Cartwright, the team’s third-leading rusher, who is currently suspended for a violation of team rules.
