FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, Texas — The State Executive Committee of the University Interscholastic League met Tuesday to hand down decisions on eligibility of student-athletes and issue penalties for UIL rule violations.

Student-athletes from Houston Yates High School and Navasota High School were granted appeals for varsity eligibility. After hearing testimony from all parties, it was determined that these students did not change schools for athletic purposes.

Student-athletes from Brownsville Veterans Memorial High School and Detroit High School were denied appeals for varsity eligibility, upholding the previous rulings of the district executive committees.

Zephyr head football coach Jeremy Phillips was denied an appeal of an ejection from a contest and was issued the automatic penalty of a public reprimand, one-year probation, and additional training.
