BREAKING NEWS: Sequoyah players, coach ruled ineligible

Eight Sequoyah football players and a coach have been ruled ineligible for Friday night’s football game at Hilldale, according to a release sent by the school on Tuesday afternoon.

The infractions, levied by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association, come a month after a Sequoyah softball player was ruled ineligible by the OSSAA.

“We are fully cooperating with the association to resolve any eligibility questions that may remain and look forward to resolving this matter as quickly as possible for our students,” said Marcus Crittenden, athletic director at Sequoyah Schools. “We want to make it clear that none of the students were at fault in these alleged infractions.”

An appeal of OSSAA’s decision will be heard on Nov. 7.
