Statement of Forfeiture

On Friday, October 20th, Preble Shawnee High School allowed a student athlete to participate in three plays against Northridge High School in a Week 9 varsity football game. Unfortunately, the students’ eligibility was not officially restored by OHSAA guidelines until the following day.

This was discovered on Thursday, October 26th while discussing the eligibility of another student athlete.  Once realized there was a potential violation of a bylaw, Preble Shawnee High School self-reported the incident to Dr. Deborah Moore, Senior Director of Compliance at OHSAA.

Dr. Moore requested further documentation of the alleged incident. This was provided on Friday, October 27th. Later that evening, it was evident that the violation was going to lead to the forfeiture of the victory over a winless Northridge Polar Bear team during Week 9.

We will continue to examine how this violation occurred and what steps can be put in place so this never repeats. At no time did the coaching staff or administration knowingly act dishonestly. This was simply an oversight, one that had a huge impact on the players, school, and community. 

This does not take away from an amazing season by a quality group of young men. Although the official record at OHSAA will have us at 7-3, we watched our team each Friday night earn the respect and admiration of not only our community but other football programs as well. On the field, our Preble Shawnee Arrows were 8-2.

One final note, there are some that may question why our high school would self-report this seemingly inconsequential violation. Couldn’t we have just looked the other way considering a record setting season was on the line? Would other schools have self-reported? I cannot speak to the integrity of others, only Preble Shawnee. I can say, without hesitation, that Preble Shawnee High School, its Athletic Director, football coaches, and administration acted with integrity. They chose to be honest and hopefully set an example for our young people in the midst of adversity.

Go Arrows!

Dr. Matt M. Bishop

Superintendent of Schools
