News spread like an Arizona wild fire when Jack Elway, son of Hall of Famer John Elway decided to join the football program and Arizona State.
Elway was a standout quarterback at Cherry Creek High School in Englewood, Colo., before picking Arizona State.
His father played at Stanford before leading the Broncos to back-to-back Super Bowl titles.
Sun Devils coach Dennis Erickson told The Arizona Republic on Monday, "He's just tired of football and wants to do something else with his life."
His decision however came after not playing in a scrimmage last weekend, according to the Arizona Republic. Erickson said the young Elway would eventually have gotten playing time.
Jack Elway was still enlisted as a student at the school and plans to stay there.
