Dylan Favre, the nephew of NFL MVP Brett Favre, will be a member of the Pearl River Community College football team this season.
Favre was in uniform and a part of the Meet the Wildcats ceremony Thursday night at Dobie Holden Stadium on the campus of PRCC. He is expected to be PRCC's starting quarterback this season.
Favre, a Mississippi State transfer, was temporarily suspended from the Wildcat team two months ago, when he was arrested on drug charges by the Pearl River County Sheriff's Department.
Favre had been practicing with PRCC in pre-season camp. He led St. Stanislaus to the 2009 MHSAA Class 4A state championship title, as he set Mississippi high school records with 63 touchdown passes and 5,511 passing yards while playing for the Rock-A-Chaws that season.
Hatten was unavailable for comment at press time. A press release from PRCC late Thursday afternoon confirmed that Favre was set to be a part of the team this season.
The Wildcats begin the season Thursday on the road at defending JuCo National Champion East Mississippi.
