West Genesee graduate and Syracuse University freshman Naesean "Naes" Howard is suspended from the Orange Football team.

Head Coach Scott Shafer announced the suspension after practice wrapped up Monday. The suspension is expected to be brief and is for a violation of training camp rules.

Shafer says that the suspension is for the team's trip to Fort Drum this week and when the team returns, he'll sit down with Howard to make sure he learned his lesson.

Howard was a star on both offense and defense for the Wildcats the past few seasons and after signing his letter of intent with the Orange in February, Howard visited CNY Central studios.
