Myers Park Football OUT for Rest of Season

In a ruling by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, Myers Park High School must forfeit all of the scheduled 2021-2022 football season because of an ineligible player violation. The school appealed on grounds that proof of student enrollment and athletic eligibility was found to have been falsified and was not evident until reported in Jan. 2022. The NCHSAA’s Board of Directors heard Myers Park’s appeal, but upheld their Executive Committee’s decision and denied the appeal. In accordance with the selected procedure of the ruling, Myers Park will forfeit all 2021-2022 football games, return the $6,700 it earned from playoff games, and pay a $250 fine.
