Danville may have to forfeit its two football victories this season because it used an ineligible player against Garrard County and Lincoln County.
Sam Harp, Danville's football coach and athletics director, said this morning that he had reported the violation to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Tuesday and was told today that the recommendation had been made by KHSAA assistant commissioner Julian Tackett that the Admirals forfeit the two games. KHSAA commissioner Brigid DeVries was to make a final ruling later today.
"Nothing was done to intentionally deceive anyone," Harp said.
Avery Moore, a 140-pound sophomore running back-defensive back, transferred to Danville in January from Lincoln County. He had played on the Lincoln football team in 2003.
Moore was a member of Danville's track team last spring and came out for football in July.
"I had no knowledge of when he enrolled at Danville or that he had ever played football when he came out in July," Harp said. "Him and his mother moved here in January and are still living in the same house. But we did not fill out any paperwork."
