The Falcons had already made the playoffs with a 3-1 record in the 13-1A District. Their season has come to an end with the decision made in Austin on Thursday morning.
UIL has terminated their season due to a violation of section 1206(d) which covers off-season workouts and in-school day periods that coaches can use for practice. The violation occurred Oct. 11, the day after then-head football coach Howard McDaniel was placed on administrative leave, according to Granger Huntress with sixmanfootball.com, who was at Thursday's public hearing.
