The Ballad of Stephen Garcia
quote:

Freshman

Although a highly touted recruit, during his first semester on campus in the Spring of 2007, Garcia was suspended twice from practice after being arrested in February for public intoxication and, in March, for keying a professor's car.[3] These charges were dropped after Garcia made restitution to the professor and completed a pre-trial intervention program.[4] In March 2008, Garcia and two teammates were arrested and cited for underage drinking.[5] That same evening, police were called to his dormitory where Garcia admitted to pulling a fire alarm and discharging a fire extinguisher after noticing sparks coming from his stove. Although no formal charges were filed, as a result of these incidents, Garcia was suspended from the university.[6][7] After his reinstatement, as a redshirt freshman in 2008, Garcia started three games for the Gamecocks. He was named SEC Freshman of the Week for his performance in a 24-17 victory over Kentucky (169 passing yards and 1 TD in a half of play). Garcia finished the 2008 season with 832 passing yards, 6 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions, also accounting for 198 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

Sophomore

In 2009, with Garcia as their starting quarterback, the Gamecocks had a 7-6 record and made an appearance in the PapaJohns.com Bowl. Garcia posted four 300-yard passing games (Georgia, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Arkansas) with victories over two Top-25 opponents (Ole Miss and Clemson). The Gamecocks victory over the Rebels was the second defeat of a Top-5 opponent in program history. In the regular season finale against arch-rival Clemson, Garcia passed for 126 yards (3 TDs, 1 INT) and rushed for 46 yards. For the 2009 season, he passed for 2,862 yards with 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, adding 186 rushing yards and four touchdowns on the ground.

Junior

In the 2010 season, the Gamecocks posted a 9-5 record (5-3 SEC), won the SEC East title, and finished #22 in both the AP and Coaches' Final Polls. South Carolina got its first-ever win over a #1-ranked opponent (Alabama) and beat division rivals Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee for the first time in the same season. The Gamecocks also defeated arch-rival Clemson for the second consecutive year and faced the eventual BCS national champion Auburn Tigers in the SEC Championship Game (56-17 loss). The season concluded with an appearance in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl against Florida State, who defeated Carolina 26-17. For the 2010 season, Garcia passed for 3,059 yards with 20 touchdowns and 14 interceptions (64.2 completion %), adding 222 rushing yards and six touchdowns on the ground.

Senior

To open 2011 spring practices, Garcia was suspended for one week for violating team rules during the bowl trip in December 2010.[8] In April 2011, it was announced that Garcia had been suspended indefinitely for causing a disturbance at an SEC-mandated meeting designed to encourage good life choices beyond college.[9] Garcia was allowed to return to the team for voluntary summer workouts in June,[10] officially reinstated for fall camp in August,[11] and played in the first five games of the 2011 season. But on October 11, South Carolina's athletic director, Eric Hyman announced Garcia had been dismissed from the program.[12] Garcia failed to meet agreed-upon guidelines established by the team as a condition of his reinstatement, reportedly failing a substance screening for alcohol consumption.[13] In his final five games as a Gamecock, Garcia completed 61-of-118 passes (51.7 percent) for 844 yards with four touchdowns and nine interceptions, as well as three rushing touchdowns.[14]



Garcia ended his college career with a 20-14 record as a starter for South Carolina and his statistics are as follows: 7,597 passing yards (47 TD, 41 INT) and 777 rushing yards (15 TD). Garcia was suspended five times during the course of his college career and ultimately dismissed from the football program midway through his final season of eligibility.[2]

Saw him at Olympia's pool when he came back for pro day... Someone gave him a football to throw and he almost broke a window of the leasing office with his first toss
