Last night we were made aware that an athlete on our Varsity Football team has been ruled ineligible. This young man has participated in all of our games and because of that, makes the result of those games official forfeits. We will also be forfeiting tonight's game against Mt. Dora Christian due to this issue.
The innocence and intent of the athlete's actions is unfortunately irrelevant, as they run contrary to the expectations and policies of CFCA and our governing football body, the SSAC. While CFCA Coaches and Staff had zero knowledge of any wrong-doing until last night, we will work with the SSAC and the FHSAA and conduct an internal investigation to ensure that this kind of ineligibility never happens to our school again. With all due respect, we will not offer any further comment until the investigation is complete.
Thank you for your understanding, support, and prayers for our young men and their coaches during this time.
