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

The Duncanville High School football program was issued one year probation and a public reprimand for the violation of UIL rules regarding the employment of coaches. Head football coach Reginald Samples was issued one year probation and is suspended for the first game of the 2020 Football season.

The UIL State Executive Committee upheld the ruling of the district executive committee issued to the Beeville Jones High School boys basketball program. The school’s forfeiture of three games stands.

Two student-athletes from Gilmer High School and a student-athlete from El Paso Bel Air High School were denied appeals for varsity eligibility, upholding the previous rulings of the district executive committees.
