Glenville High School was placed on a three-year probation, and is ineligible for the 2018 playoffs, according to the state.
According to the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA), there are 13 players on the football team that should play for other schools, based on their addresses.
Ten players should play for John Hay, two should play for Collinwood High School and one player did not have an address associated with him.
Chester Lottier’s grandson is a senior player on the team, and now he is worried about missing out on a football scholarship.
“He put in a lot of time for this. Other boys have put in time. To have it taken away from them is not right,” Lottier said. “You don’t enforce a rule in the middle of the year.”
Cleveland Public School’s spokesperson Roseann Canfora said the district filed an appeal with OHSAA to find a way to hold the district accountable, not the kids.
