Aldreakis Allen has been suspended

As the News & Advance first reported Tuesday night, Aldreakis Allen was arrested on Friday and arraigned in Lynchburg General District Court “on one count each of attempted robbery of a residence and malicious wounding” from incidents which occurred on March 3.

As reported yesterday, Allen was suspended from the football program on Tuesday.

The loss of Allen could be crushing to Liberty’s running game as Allen and departed senior Sirchauncey Holloway were the only 2 running backs to get a significant number of carries in 2012. D.J. Abnar and Desmond Rice will catapult to the top of the depth chart at running back. This tandem combined for 132 rushing yards and 1 touchdown on 29 carries in 2012.
