Just saw a report on channel 8 that said former UNT QB Damon West was the Mastermind behind a burlary crew in Uptown Dallas. I've been following NT for 20 years. When did this guy play?

When is Rick Villarreal going to admit that Tony Benford means LOSING College basketball?

I remember this story from last year. Here's the gmg thread about it. You should find all your answer there.

Damon West was a very capable 5A QB out of Port Arthur Thomas Jefferson (now Memorial HS), and son of Port Arthur News Sports Editor Bob West. I don't have a football guide in front of me but I believe he played in '96 - '97 as a true Freshman. He got his baptism against Arizona State. His Soph. year he was injured against Texas A & M and was out for the season. The following summer as he was preparing for the fall season, he slipped in his shower and cut/tore his achilles tendon. That was the end of his career. I want to say that he did get a degree from NT but I'm not sure. What a waste of talent, and what a shame that he is involved burglary.

If I find my media guide I'll update this post.

Deep...I remember him being around here for several years. But the media guide shows that he was a letter winner in only one year---1995.

This just burns my butt. Every time someone commits a crime, and if they ever spent one day as a student or athlete at North Texas, their main identity then becomes "Former UNT Student/Athete (insert name here)". Since he was most recently hired to work as an aid to Garry Mauro, why couldn't his identity be "Former aid to Garry Mauro, Damon West on trial"?..... mad.gif

Probably for the same reason that the Yahoo article about Bruce Smith's DUI arrest refers to him as "former NFL star" instead of "hotel developer".

Wikipedia on Bruce Smith

And, let's face it, even among us diehard Democrats, Garry Mauro is pretty much old news, unless you know something I don't. There was a feature posted on the Internet yesterday about Lane Kiffen's(sp?) search for a starting quarterback at Tennessee, which stated how important it is for their quarterback to have good character. Maybe this shows why: "ex quarterback of <place university name here> arrested for <put crime here>" just sells newspapers. Rent a copy of the old movie "Shipping News" to hear a good explanation of why controversial headlines are good for newspapers.
