MARSHALL LOBBESTAEL: PREVIOUSLY MOST FAMOUS FOR INJURING HIS KNEE
Last year was a disaster for the Washington State University football team as the Cougars went 2-11. One of the problems was the team’s quarterbacks were decimated with injuries. The situation was so bad that the school actually held tryouts for walk on quarterbacks.
The Cougars leading returning quarterback for next season was 19-year-old Marshall Lobbestael. He led the Cougs with a measley four touchdown passes last year. Lobbestael has now been suspended by Wazzu after being found drunk and passed out in a pickup truck which was parked in a police parking lot in Pullman, Washington. Lobbestael was arrested on Saturday. He is still recovering from a season-ending knee injury he suffered in 2008.
KXLY TV in Spokane is reporting that Loebbestael had a pair of encounters with police on Saturday. They first stopped Lobbestael when they spotted the young qb carrying an unconscious woman in the College Hill area of Pullman. The young lady was arrested on Minor In Possession of alcohol charges. Lobbestael then apparently abandoned the girl and headed back to the pickup where he passed out. Unfortunately for Lobbestael, the truck was parked in the Pullman police parking lot.
The campus newspaper, The Daily Evergreen, had the spectacular detail that Lobbestael had a grocery bag full of vomit between his legs when police arrested him.
