FHSAA asking Jefferson for more info regarding eligibility of football player

Florida High School Athletics Association spokesperson Corey Sobers told the Tampa Tribune on Tuesday the FHSAA has received an EL10 form from Jefferson requesting an eligibility ruling on one of its players but the FHSAA is now asking the school for additional information before it can deliver a decision.
Hanging in the balance of this ruling are possible forfeitures by Jefferson’s football team and a potential three-way tie for the Class 6A-District 8 title.
As it stands now, Hillsborough is the district champ and, if Armwood defeats King on Friday, the Hawks are runners-up. But if Jefferson has to forfeit a win against Sickles earlier this year due to playing an ineligible player, the district could finish in a three-way tie for first place between Sickles, Hillsborough and Armwood.
If that scenario occurs, a tiebreaker would be played Monday at 7 p.m. at Hillsborough High. Stay tuned to TBO.com for updates on this story.
