QB LeMay to meet with Victory Christian Thursday

Butler High quarterback Christian LeMay and his father have a meeting scheduled with Victory Christian school officials Thursday, a source close to the school told the Observer.

LeMay is considered one of the nation’s top 20 college recruits by most scouting services. He committed to Georgia in May. In June, LeMay broke a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ code-of-conduct rule and was given a 30-day out-of-school suspension.

The LeMays had an appeals hearing last week, though the results are not known. If the suspension was upheld, it would keep LeMay off the Butler football team until late October.

If LeMay were to transfer to a private or out-of-state school, he could potentially play immediately.

Efforts to reach LeMay’s father, Stacy, were unsuccessful.

Victory Christian coach Frank Crockett declined comment. The Observer contacted coaches at Concord First Assembly (Mike Minter), Providence Day (Bruce Hardin) and Charlotte Latin (Larry McNulty), who all said they have had no contact from the LeMay family.

Efforts to reach Charlotte Country Day coach Bob Witman and Charlotte Christian’s Jason Estep were unsuccessful.

LeMay passed for more than 3,000 yards and 44 touchdowns last season, with two interceptions, leading the Bulldogs to an unbeaten season and N.C. 4AA championship.
