Virginia Tech has been consistent about defending their former star quarterback Ron Mexico since that whole dogfighting business, but his high school, well, they're not so proud anymore.

Warwick High School in Newport News, Virg., has decided to take Vick's old jersey out of their trophy case.

Michelle Morgan, a spokeswoman for Newport News Public Schools, said Vick's jersey was taken down last month around the time he pleaded guilty to federal dogfighting charges.

"It remained up through a lot of the allegations and news reports," Morgan said. "It came out after he admitted to some wrongdoings."


The good news is that Deion Sanders will always be wearing his Vick underoos.
