Junior QB Shane Bussey leaves King’s Academy 

By Jeff Greer

King’s Academy coach Craig Dobson said junior quarterback Shane Bussey is “no longer at King’s” Academy on Thursday. ESPN 760’s Herb Uzzi first reported Bussey’s leaving the school.

“I can tell you he’s no longer at King’s,” Dobson said Thursday afternoon. “That’s all I can comment. From a coaching standpoint, it will affect our team, but we will do what we have to do to continue to be a successful football program.”

Bussey was an honorable mention quarterback in the Post‘s 2010 All-Area team. He threw for 1,514 yards, 18 touchdowns and four interceptions as a junior.

King’s does return standout running back Brian Grove and linebacker Gage Batten, two first-team All-Area selections from 2010.
