Pottsboro Forfeits First Three Games

The Pottsboro Cardinals are undefeated no more.

Even after winning their first 5 games by sizable margins, the Pottsboro Cardinals will start district play with a 2-3 record.

According to Pottsboro head coach Matt Poe, the Cardinals self reported the use of an ineligible player to the UIL, which turned their first three wins into losses.

Poe said that there was information on the student's Previous Athletic Participation form that was untrue. He also said an appeal would be heard by the UIL's State Executive Board in October.

The Cardinals playoff chances will be unaffected, as the games were all non-district contests. Gunter, Aubrey and Boyd will all receive an additional win.
