BELTON, TX — An undisclosed number of football players with the University of Mary Hardin Baylor team have been suspended due to a violation of the team policies. One player was removed from the team indefinitely.

In a press conference on Monday, Coach Pete Fredenburg named the player removed from the team, Chaka Watson. Fredenburg said Watson was the only player kicked off the team, and he is no longer a student at the school. He would have been a sophomore this year.

Watson was a cornerback from Orange, Texas. He was listed as a varsity starter for 2019-2020 season.

As for the other players who were suspended over the summer, they will sit out for 5 games.

"Anytime you lose good players, it affects you. We want to develop guys to be great teammates, care about each other. Sometimes being selfish, it costs a lot," said Fredenburg. "This team is going to be made up of guys that care about each other...Those who don't want to fall in lock step with us, they're not going to be here."

Cru football is set to host Albright College to start the 2019 season on Sept. 14 at 6 p.m.
