The Duke football program dismissed its top special teams ace on Friday. The team’s starting kicker and punter, Austin Parker, has been dismissed for violating the university’s academic policy, Duke announced in a press release (h/t College Football Talk). Per the press release, Parker had previously been suspended for this violation, and the dismissal is the next step in the process. As the team’s starting kicker and punter, Parker has been a key member of the Blue Devils’ success in 2017.
