(Updated) Gulf QB Keshaun Peters dismissed from team; Chris Klyap will start Friday vs. Nature Coast

Gulf coach Tom Carter confirmed to the Tampa Tribune on Wednesday evening that freshman starting quarterback Keshaun Peters has been dismissed from the football team due to violations of team rules just days before the Buccaneers home opener against Brooksville Nature Coast on Friday.
“Keshaun is no longer a member of the Gulf football team due to behavior detrimental to the team,” the first-year head coach said.
The dismissal comes in wake of the Buccaneers loss of their preseason classic to River Ridge 26-3 on Friday night. The departure of Peters makes way for the second new starting quarterback this week for the Buccaneers. Peters had been named the starter earlier in the week, beating out sophomore Chris Kylap and senior Ty’Shon Peters, who is Keshaun’s older brother, though Carter told the Tribune that Klyap will start Friday.
Last season, Gulf went 6-4 with interm voach Ken Hollar, who had replaced Jay Fulmer amid recruiting controversies and during the offseason, the Buccaneers hired Carter, who had been a long-time assistant with the Land O’ Lakes football program.
