“With our full support and understanding, Pat Bostick left campus last night and returned home to Lancaster to deal with a personal issue,” Wannstedt said in a statement. “Everyone connected with our program has the highest regard for Pat, not only as a talented football player but also as a fine young man. No timetable has been set for his return. we are leaving that judgment to Pat and intend to do everything we can to be supportive of him and his family.”
While there’s the cynical and selfish part that quietly notes that this will put him further behind Bill Stull and Kevan Smith in the QB battle, the real hope is that whatever it is that got him back on the PA Turnpike to Exit 266 is nothing too serious.
UPDATE: I’m hoping it is nothing too serious, but I’m really afraid that this might have something to do with it.
A 77-year-old motorist died Monday morning when his pickup truck collided with an oncoming vehicle and struck a utility pole in Clay Township, investigators said.
The Lititz man, whose name wasn’t released, was driving a Ford Ranger in the 2000 block of Route 322 about 9:50 a.m. when it collided with an Oldsmobile driven by 56-year-old Margaret Eckles, police said.
The impact forced the Ranger off the roadway and into a utility pole, according to investigators.
The man was extricated from his vehicle and flown to Reading Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
Clay Township police said they didn’t released the victim’s name Monday because his family hadn’t been notified.
I’m really hoping to be wrong.
ADDENDUM: An apology and explanation about this post.
