UM’s Wright, DeMartini Suspended For Opener
UMaine football will play UConn in the season opener Thursday night without leading receiver Micah Wright and punter James DeMartini. Both have been suspended for violation of the student-athlete conduct code.
Wright, a sophomore, will sit two games for his violation. A year ago, he played in all 11 games, caught 61 passes for 818 yards and five TDs.
DeMartin, a senior, will sit one game. He averaged almost 41 yards per punt last season.
The Black Bears take on the UConn Huskies Thursday night at 7pm.
