The Alabama High School Athletic Association has ordered Wetumpka High School to forfeit its five victories this season due to the use of an ineligible player.

As a result, Greenville High School’s record improved to 8-0. Wetumpka defeated the Tigers 24-7 in the season opener.

Wetumpka also forfeited wins over Jeff Davis, Robert E. Lee, G.W. Carver and Benjamin Russell.

According to Wetumpka head coach Chad Anderson, the penalty came after the Indians played a player who was deemed to have not made a bona fide move.
