Mike Vick may have had the best comeback season ever, but his high school in Virginia is still not ready applaud him again.
According to TMZ, even a petition from current students isn’t getting Vick back in Warwick High School’s hall of fame.
Michael Vick’s former high school has REFUSED to re-hang the NFL star’s framed prep football jersey in their hallway … despite a spirited student-initiated campaign … TMZ has learned.
Vick’s Jersey had been on display in the hallway at Warwick High in Newport News, VA until 2007 … when he was busted for that whole dogfighting ring. However, after Vick’s incredible NFL comeback this past season, hundreds of students rallied to get administrators to forgive Vick and re-hang his old #7.
But school officials have made their decision — telling TMZ the jersey will NOT be returned on display for the remainder of the year.
Officials tell us they believe the jersey would be a “distraction to the student’s education” … plus, faculty members are concerned the jersey could be vandalized or stolen.
Do you think Big Ben McRapey‘s old school has those same concerns?
