Idaho State University's struggling football team has taken another hit as two players tested positive for illegal use of steroids.
The players' names were not announced, but Friday they were declared ineligible for the rest of the season, Idaho State Athletic Director Randy Hoffman said.Hoffman refused to release the names, citing an NCAA rule that prevents its members from commenting on drug-testing results in regards to the student-athlete's Buckley Amendment rights.
However, Boise's KBCI Channel 2 reported Friday the players were linebacker Tom Brooks and wide receiver Torrey Sheets, both seniors.
Bengal coach Garth Hall could not be reached for comment Friday.
Brooks was listed behind Craig Barr on the depth chart. The Salt Lake City native started one game, played in all four and had 13 tackles. Sheets, a Jerome, Idaho native, had one catch for 5 yards in two games.
