Fox Creek Forced to Forfeit Entire Football Season
web posted April 4, 2011
MERRIWETHER – Fox Creek Charter School's entire
football season is all for naught after new broke Friday that the South
Carolina High School League ruled the Predators broke the rules on
player eligibility. As such, the first time winning season with playoff
games is now a winless season at 0-10, rather than the 8-4 they posted.
The SCHSL conducted an audit and the findings indicated that the
Predators had an ineligible player participate in games. Under the
rules, the games the player was involved - dressed out or playing (or
not) - must be forfeited. That meant the entire season.
This is the second time Fox Creek has been reprimanded and punished by
the SCHSL. In September of last year, 8 players from
Fox Creek were suspended from play for one game after a brawl that
broke out after the second half in the Fox Creek-North game on
September 17. Two of the players were forced to sit out a second game
Two players from the North team were also banned from playing in their
next game for their part in the brawl.
Though the entire 2010-2011 season has been eviscerated, the SCHSL is
not punishing the school for the upcoming year. The player in question
has not been identified by the school and is believed to be a player
that found time on the field at the JV and Varsity level.
