Teddy Dupay was sentenced to 30 days in jail yesterday for assaulting a woman last summer in Park City, Utah. He faced rape and kidnapping charges stemming from an incident in which he attacked a woman that he had been dating, but plead guilty before his trial started.
Dupay has had a rough go of it since his playing days. He was about as decorated as a high school player can be - McDonald's all-american (he won the 1998 three point shooting contest), Florida's all-time leading scorer (3,744 points), averaged 41.5 ppg for Mariner High School, and scored 70 in one game.
Dupay was named to the all-SEC freshman team his first year in Gainesville, and was an all-academic and all-conference player his sophomore year as the Gators reached the 2000 national title game.
But his junior year was derailed by injuries, and he never played a senior season.
Gambling on college sports. Dupay would get a cup of coffee in the NBA Summer League before eventually giving up the sport and becoming ... a telemarketer.
And they say that college athletes are unprepared for a world outside of sports.
