The Ohio High School Athletic Association has ruled two
student-athletes ineligible at Pickerington Central High School for
being in violation of the Association’s residency and transfer bylaws. Do the undefeated Tigers have to forfeit any games?


COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio High School Athletic Association has ruled two student-athletes ineligible at Pickerington Central High School for being in violation of the Association’s residency and transfer bylaws. Because it was determined that falsified information was provided to the school regarding the bona-fide residence of the student’s parents, the school will not be forced to forfeit any victorious football contests in which the ineligible students participated.

The ruling was made after the school turned over its findings to the OHSAA following an extensive internal investigation. Because of the infraction, the Association has ruled the two students ineligible for interscholastic athletic participation in any OHSAA member school for one year beginning October 10, 2008.
