ScoutSouth.com: AHSAA Rulings Come Down Hard
Hoover was found to have played an ineligible player. They will forfeit their region wins over Vestavia, Spain Park, Carver and Mountain Brook . The player did not play in the Minor game nor did he play in the Homewood or Oak Mountain game. This leaves Hoover with an overall record of 3-5 and a 3-4 region record.
The Bucs made the playoffs by virtue of their win over Oak Mountain last week, but they are a fourth seed rather than the region champion and No.1 seed.
Vestavia Hills is the 6A region 6 champion with a 7-0 region record and an 8-1 overall record. Spain Park is the second seed with a 6-1 region record with the only loss to the Rebels.
Mountain Brook has worked their way to a 5-2 region record after 1-3 early start. The Spartans have climbed back up to get the third seed with the forfeit of Hoover, and by the way of Morgan Ogilvie leading this offensive squad after breaking his leg earlier in the year.
The news is not that good for Oxford and Huffman High Schools. Both teams are out of 6A Region 7.
Huffman will have to forfeit victories over Shades Valley (R), Pinson Valley (R), Pell City (R) and 5A Woodlawn due to an ineligible player. That takes Huffman out of a playoff spot, and they now sit with a record of 3-6 overall and 2-5 in the region.
The Oxford Yellow Jackets were undefeated and having a dream season when news came of an ineligible player who transferred from Clay-Chalkville. The AHSAA ruled Monday that Oxford must forfeit their first seven games, all games the player in question participated. That brings their record to 2-7 overall and 2-5 in the region.
Games won over non-region opponents East Coweta, Georgia and Pelham and region foes Pinson Valley, Huffman, Gadsden City, Hewitt-Trussville and Clay-Chalkville are all forfeited.
The 6A region 7 champion is now Gadsden City with a region record of 6-1 and 8-1 overall. The second seed for the state playoffs is Hewitt-Trussville at 5-2 (7-2).
Pinson Valley, who is the benefactor of both forfeits are 4-5 overall with a region record of 4-3, is the third seed from this region.
Pell City and Clay-Chalkville have identical records, and Pell City gets the fourth spot due to their win over Clay-Chalkville (27-26) September 21st. The Panthers record went to 4-5 with a 3-4 region record.
That leaves Clay-Chalkville 3-4; Shades Valley 2-5, Huffman 2-5, and Oxford 2-5 at home for the playoffs.
