None of the football players who were at the center of a controversy at Volcano Vista surrounding questions of eligibility will miss any games in 2014, the Journal has learned.
The New Mexico Activities Association has completed its investigation of the players. “As far as we’re concerned, the case is closed,” executive director Sally Marquez said.
Nine players were investigated by the NMAA over the past few months. It sought to determine whether or not they were eligible to play this fall.
The Journal had previously reported that several players were under suspicion of falsifying addresses to attend Volcano Vista and were facing a possible season-long suspension from football.
But at a recent appeals hearing, the NMAA cleared all the players, who are all believed to be practicing this month. The regular season begins in two weeks.
