Trujillo leaves San Diego

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - San Diego senior quarterback Sebastian Trujillo, one of the 20 candidates on the Walter Payton Award list, has left the program, a spokesman for the university announced on Tuesday.

The spokesman said that Trujillo had left for "personal reasons" and is expected to withdraw from the university as well.

Trujillo passed for 2,822 yards and 35 touchdowns last season, earning first- team honors in the Pioneer Football League, as the replacement to current Tampa Bay Buccaneers starter and Payton Award finalist Josh Johnson.

In three games this season, though, Trujillo completed 32-of-58 passes for 253 yards with three touchdowns and four interceptions. He was benched in the team's last game on September 19 against Marist after connecting on 6-of-9 passes for just 31 yards.

Sam Scudellari replaced Trujillo and led a second-half comeback that concluded with a 26-yard, game-winning touchdown pass to Patrick Doyle with 41 seconds left in a 17-10 victory that improved San Diego to 2-1.

Scudellari, a redshirt freshman, is listed as the starter for San Diego's PFL road game with 4-0 Butler on Saturday afternoon. He will be backed up by true freshman Bo Stompro.
