WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - An official says the starting quarterback for Winston-Salem State was beaten up one day before his team was to play for the CIAA championship.
School spokeswoman Nancy Young said Friday that Rudy Johnson was assaulted in a bathroom during a luncheon hosted on campus for the Rams and their opponent, Virginia State. The two teams play for the CIAA title on Saturday in Winston-Salem.
Young said campus police are investigating.
Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association officials said in a statement that they are aware that student-athletes were involved. Police were not immediately available for comment.
Both Winston-Salem State and Virginia State are 9-1. The Rams lost to Valdosta State in the NCAA Division II championship game last year.
