FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUSTIN, TX — The State Executive Committee of the University Interscholastic League met Wednesday to hand down decisions on eligibility of student-athletes.
Student-athletes from Killeen Ellison High School, El Paso Americas High School, Tenaha High School, and Duncanville High School were denied an appeal for varsity eligibility, upholding the previous ruling of the district executive committee.
The State Executive Committee also met for an emergency hearing. The committee found that the Wolfforth Frenship High School football team allowed an ineligible player to participate in its contest versus San Angelo Central High School. It was determined that the school did not exercise sufficient diligence in determining the eligibility of the student-athlete. By rule, the minimum penalty for allowing an ineligible player to participate is forfeiture.
