Wow that sucks. It seems like they should have been forced to reveal the reason. If you are going to stop these kids from trying to live out one of their dreams of winning a state championship you should have to reveal why.

My husband watched them play Wando and he said that he heard Wando parents complaining that they (Goose Creek) were playing players that should have been academically ineligible and also their players were too old to play at the high school level. Have no idea if any of this is true, it's just what he heard while watching the game.
I coach at Blue Ridge and we got a one day notice last week on the same type of thing. Lower Richland beat us the Friday before 26-21. So they and Daniel spent all week getting ready to play each other. Then at 430 on Thursday, we are notified that LR had an ineligible player and were being forced to forfeit their win over us.
We had to bring all the kids back in and re-issue all the equipment and then the coaches spent Thursday night watching film to try and figure out Daniel's schemes. On Friday the kids got out of class early to watch film and do a couple of walk throughs before having to drive down and play one of the best teams in the state.
Tough scenario for all involved.
they were going to lose to Northwestern anyway so it don't really matter.

From a source close to the situation:
They were disqualified for having a fifth year special needs kid on the team. Take it for what it is worth.
WF will take care of Northwestern Friday night. Go Knights!
JC with a hot sports opinion on the situation. Would love to know the reason why he feels so strongly about Coach Reedy.

hahahahahaha!!!! not going to happen, but thanks for playing! hahahahahahaha
Wow, kind of ridiculous if true, especially if the kid didn't play much.
Stranger things have happened. Barry Byers in The Herald today has an article all but saying Northwestern will win, and he also suggests South Pointe will beat York so both game the next weekend will be in Rock Hill.
If Northwestern's players are that overconfident, it could be rough. WF is not that big but they are fast and the skill guys are good. Bostic is a very good receiver and they use 2 or 3 running backs who can really play.
I've read that NW throws it all over the place. I haven't seen WF play much, but the secondary has looked really good late in the season.
I'm biased though. I graduated from WF and when coaching against Northwestern 10 years or so ago, NW fumbled a hold for a field goal and about 6 of their linemen ran downfield and Benji Watson caught the illegal pass to beat York. I don't forget crap like that.
if Ben Watson was out there, Then Derek Ross was there. Y'all wasn't going to win that! lol
But seriously, I'm not fond of the new coach, but I can't bet against my high school.

you hear that at every high school game, especially when the other team's beatin' that ass.
ya'll can go ahead and overlook Greenwood if you want to.
This type of stuff happens at every level. I personally know that certain middle school teams in the midlands have played 15 yr. old 8th graders who turned 15 before the cut off date, and 16 yr. old 8th graders and nothing has ever been done about it. The only way to end all of this stuff is to start hammering the schools when they mess up. How hard is it to find out that a kid moves in and is not eligible. Plus, the SCHSL should do a spot check on the eligibility lists. This would eliminate kids who are too old to play. Once a few teams get popped hard for any of their teams (feeder schools up to Varsity), you will see a lot of this stuff end.
