A star Rock Hill high School quarterback has been removed from the team indefinitely after police say he was caught selling marijuana on school property.

According to Rock Hill school officials, South Pointe High School quarterback Davonta Blake is "off of the team indefinitely."

Seventeen-year-old Blake was suspended from the team for last week's game after he was arrested on the high school's campus when school resource officers found another student with pot on them.

That student told officers Blake sold them the marijuana.

School administrators searched Blake and found a prescription pill bottle with seven wrapped packages of marijuana in it.

Police say more weed was found at Blake's home on Mays Court. A Mason jar with 12 wrapped packages of marijuana was found in his bedroom

The 17-year-old faces a laundry list of felony drug charges.

"If he maxed out on each charge, it's probably going to be up around 60 to 100 years," said Rock Hill Police Captain Mark Bollinger.

School officials say they can't reveal any more information about Blake's status at the school or team without violating the teen's privacy.

Blake is currently out of jail on a $30,000 bond. He was charged with distribution of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and four other drug-related charges.
