FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX— The State Executive Committee of the University Interscholastic League handed down decisions on the eligibility of student-athletes and issued penalties to coaches for violations of UIL rules on Wednesday.

Student-athletes from Kennedale High School and Humble High School were denied their appeals for varsity eligibility upholding the previous rulings of the district executive committees. After hearing testimony from all interested parties, it was ruled that the student-athletes changed schools for athletic purposes.

In other action, the following coaches were issued a public reprimand and placed on probation for one year for violation of Section 1208(j), ejection from a contest:

  • Gorman High School: Coach Charles Bunch
  • Brownsboro High School: Coach Thomas Byrd
  • DeSoto High School: Coach Claude Mathis
