: : So with Alpha appeal being denied are they going to have to forfeit the games played in and if so are they going to be able to win enough in the Trinity league to be an automatic qualifier? If not will CIF make an exception to the 500 record or better to qualify as at at-large?
: What did he do to become ineligible?
Apparently, although there has been no official explanation and probably will not be due to student privacy rights, he had already completed 8 semesters of high school last year and thus had used his athletic eligibility. This is extremely unfortunate for the young man as someone did not do their due diligence on his behalf at the time that he repeated a grade or "started high school over". He is very talented and will likely have a college basketball career. Meanwhile his teammates will have to forfeit any games he has played in, which is what happens when adults don't do the right thing. Unfortunate for a well coached team that is having a terrific year.
