Air Force suspends kicker Harrison indefinitely

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- Air Force suspended sophomore
place-kicker Ryan Harrison indefinitely Wednesday for an
unspecified violation of school standards.

Harrison, who played in two games last season, was expected to
challenge for a starting position as both the place kicker and
punter this season. He can practice with the team, but will not be
allowed in any games.

"Ryan is handling his responsibilities in a very mature and
outstanding way," coach Fisher DeBerry said. "We look forward to
the time that he will hopefully be able to return to the team and
represent the academy on the playing field."

The school said it would not disclose details of the suspension
and said Harrison did not wish to talk with reporters.

Air Force, after back-to-back seasons of 5-6, was recently
picked to finish seventh in the nine-team Mountain West Conference
by news media.
