Former NFL player Darren Sharper, now serial rapist it seems, has been removed from the Hall of Fame at his alma mater, William & Mary after pleading guilty to several rape cases.
Sharper, 39, a native of Richmond, Va., was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame in 2008. He played 14 years in the NFL and was a five-time Pro Bowl selection and six-time All-Pro.
However, his name and picture has been removed from a plague in the W&M athletic department and he will not be mentioned in any further football programs or materials.
W&M Athletic director Terry Driscoll said in a statement released by the school,
“After a period of thoughtful deliberation, the decision has been made to remove Darren Sharper from the William and Mary Hall of Fame…We view induction into this group as the highest individual honor for a former William and Mary athlete…and criteria for selection include both athletic excellence and citizenship. In light of Darren’s recent guilty plea, we decided his removal was the right course of action.”
