TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Hall of Famer John Elway's son is leaving the Arizona State football program, the school confirmed Tuesday.

However, Jack Elway plans to remain a student at the school Sun Devils coach Dennis Erickson told the Arizona Republic on Monday, "he's just tired of football and wants to do something else with his life."

Elway, a redshirt freshman quarterback, didn't play in a scrimmage last weekend, the Republic reported.

"He would have played here eventually," Erickson said.

Elway was a standout quarterback at Cherry Creek High School in Englewood, Colo., before picking Arizona State.

The elder Elway played at Stanford before spending 16 seasons with the Broncos, leading them to back-to-back Super Bowl titles after 1997-98 seasons.
