Superintendent Dr. Moore confirms Crockett cleared of allegations

CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) - Crockett ISD has been cleared of any wrongdoing in regards to eligibility violations in Friday night's playoff football game, according to Superintendent Dr. Douglas E. Moore.

A UIL official confirmed Tuesday with KTRE that they had been investigating some type of allegation into the school using ineligible players.

Moore confirmed with KTRE on Wednesday that the UIL had concluded its investigation and determined there were no violations, meaning the team would not have to forfeit its win Friday night over Newton.

Moore told KTRE that Newton officials made the accusations to UIL based on an anonymous tip received about "grades and behavioral issues within the school."

Tuesday the UIL commended Crockett for its compliance with the investigation.

"We gave them everything they wanted as fast as we could," said Moore."I'm just glad we are playing football on Saturday."

Moore did say however, the investigation could continue beyond the playing field.

"There may be some other things brought up in court," said Moore. "But we are going to play football."

The good news for Crockett football is that the game will continue as scheduled. The Bulldogs face the Harmony Eagles Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Homer Bryce stadium in Nacogdoches.
