Sequoyah players get court injunction
Legal courts are once again back in the news with just two weeks remaining in the gridiron season, which could shake things up once again with playoffs right around the corner.
Twelve Sequoyah Tahlequah players and head coach Brent Scott were ruled ineligible by the OSSAA early this week for violating association rules governing summer camps and clinics.
The 12 players, however, received a temporary restraining order from Special District Judge Douglas Kirkley on Thursday and through a show-cause hearing on Friday morning. Those Indian players are now expected to play Friday night in a Top 10 district showdown with Hilldale as their fate for the remainder of the season and playoffs rest in the court hands.
The OSSAA is expected to appeal the decision to a higher state court while awaiting the next OSSAA Board of Directors meeting on Nov. 7 which will review the penalties invoked in the case.
