Football: Austin Lacy leaves Bishop Amat

September 17, 2010 | 12:21 pm

Austin Lacy, a senior linebacker at La Puente Bishop Amat who nearly died last March from a virus, left school on Tuesday and has transferred to Pasadena, where he attended in 2008.

Lacy started for the Lancers last season but had been a part-time player this season. He was still trying to regain form following several months of rehabilitation.

His father, Darryl, said his son needed to return to a public school to "clean up" some grades from missing so much school last semester.

Since he has moved, he should be eligible to play immediately for Pasadena.
