Tennessee mom's Facebook post costs high school three football victories

September 27th, 2011 4:12 pm by Chip Cirillo

LINDEN — A mother complaining on Facebook about her sons’ messy room led to Class 1A football power Perry County vacating three wins.
The Vikings, ranked third in Class 1A, will not be able to count wins over Cornersville, Forrest and Lewis County because they used two ineligible players.
Offensive linemen Rodney and Ryan Belasic were declared ineligible by the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association because their entire family does not live in Perry County.
“(Perry County) inadvertently played ineligible athletes in the first three ballgames,” TSSAA Executive Director Bernard Childress said. “It was two brothers that transferred. They got a residence in Perry County, but they had not vacated their residence completely in Henry County.”
