American Heritage coach Willie Bueno said he was surprised to learn former Stallions quarterback Justin Feagin was arrested in connection with a cocaine sale and was unaware of Feagin’s problems while at the school.
Citing police documents, The Detroit Free Press reported Feagin was arrested for selling cocaine (and subsequently kicked off Michigan’s football team). Feagin, according to those documents, told police he sold drugs and was arrested twice (battery and trespassing) while in high school.
“I only heard about all that stuff as of today,” Bueno said Monday. “And I certainly wasn’t aware of any arrests while he was at American Heritage.”
Bueno said he has spoken to Feagin about possible transfer options.

“Hopefully, I’ll be in the NFL,” Feagin said in ’05, regarding his future plans. “That’s where I want to go. If that doesn’t work out, then I’ll go into business. Something with my uncle doing drug testing. He runs a drug testing business.”
ESPN initially reported Feagin planned to transfer to Appalachian State, but now is citing a source at the school that said he will not be admitted because of academic concerns and the Detroit Free Press report.
Feagin declined comment today, just as he did when he was kicked off the team July 27.
Feagin was the Post’s 2007 small schools Player of the Year after posting 1,420 passing yards and 19 touchdown passes, as well as 1,313 rushing yards 25 touchdown on the ground in 14 games. He helped lead the Stallions to a state championship that season.
