PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (Nov. 5, 2009)—Following a report and subsequent investigation, officials of Calvert County Public Schools found that a member of the Patuxent High School football team was ineligible to play in three games this season.
The Calvert County Public Schools athletic program follows the rules and regulations governing high school interscholastic athletics developed by the Maryland Public Secondary School Athletic Association (MPSSAA). These procedures dictate that when a player is determined to be ineligible, the team must forfeit all games in which the ineligible student played.
The Patuxent High football team was required to forfeit two of their wins - the September 11 game against Leonardtown High and the September 17 game against Calvert High.
MPSSAA did not assess penalties on any of the Patuxent High School football coaching staff because it was determined that there were no inappropriate actions on their part.
