BCHS Forfeits Week Zero Win

Bradshaw Christian's football team has forfeited their opening week win over Big Valley Christian for playing an ineligible player.

The Pride won the game on the scoreboard, 61-6, but one of their top defenders shouldn't have been in uniform. He had 14 tackles and a sack in the game.

He played last season at an Elk Grove Unified School. The player should have been serving what CIF calls the "30-day sit-out period." Athletes who transfer from one school to another and they played a varsity sport at the first school, cannot participate in his new school's games until 30 days of the regular season had expired.

The exception to this rule is if the athlete's family changes residences. Then the athlete could participate right away in his new school's varsity sport.

There has been no comment from anyone at Bradshaw.
