Committee Rules Against Yellowjackets, Season In Jeopardy

The Rio Grande Valley high school football landscape has been rocked by a ruling against one of its traditional powerhouse teams.

But the question is now, Will Edcouch-Elsa have to forfeit its 2012 season?

A parent of one Edcouch-Elsa player brought allegations against the school TMs coaching staff to the 32-4A District Executive Committee two weeks ago.

According to the allegations, the Yellowjackets had violated the UIL's 8-hours-per-week practice rule.

The 32-4A District executive committee found Edcouch-Elsa guilty, and as punishment, the DEC ruled the Yellowjackets should forfeit the entire 2012 season.

Edcouch-Elsa ISD will appeal the ruling with the UIL State Executive Committee.
