2 players ineligible on Briles-coached high school team
DALLAS (AP) - A district executive committee has ruled that two players on an East Texas high school football team coached by former Baylor coach Art Briles are ineligible.
The Dallas Morning News reports the committee voted 6-0 three weeks ago that Brock and Cameron Nellor moved to the Mount Vernon Independent School District for athletic purposes, a violation of University Interscholastic League rules. The vote was confirmed Sept. 18 by a 3-0 vote with three district superintendents abstaining.
The committee had previously ruled the two were eligible.
Mount Vernon school Superintendent Jason McCullough told the newspaper that Briles and the district received a public reprimand but no forfeitures. However, the UIL executive committee can still forfeit five games in which the two played.
