On Friday, Sept. 30, the Alabama High School Athletic Association fined Coosa Christian High School’s varsity football program for playing some ineligible players in violation of the AHSAA Transfer Rule.
As a result, Coosa Christian’s program will be fined and must forfeit all games won that the ineligible students participated in. Those games include all five games played by Coosa Christian this season through Sept. 22, which included wins over non-region opponent Spring Garden, wins over Class 1A, Region 7 opponents Gaylesville, Decatur Heritage and Valley Head and a loss to Geraldine. With Heritage Academy of Mississippi forfeiting its game at Coosa on Sept. 29, the Conquerors’ record is now 1-5 overall and 0-3 in Region 7.
“We are appealing the decision and have no further comment at this time,” said Coosa Christian head football coach Mark O’Bryant (pictured above).
