Clarkston football forfeits first two wins

The Clarkston football team, which was ranked No. 7 in the state in the latest edition of the POWERADE Michigan football rankings, has forfeited its first two wins after it was determined the Wolves used an ineligible player.

The problem stemmed from a student who was taking correspondence classes. The student was believed to be eligible to play, but upon further examination, it was ruled he was ineligible. Because he played in the team's first two contests — wins over Rochester Adams and West Bloomfield — Clarkston was forced to give up wins in those games. The Wolves had been 3-0; now they are 1-2. Adams moves to 3-0 and West Bloomfield is 2-1.

Clarkston can still qualify for the state tournament if the team wins five of its final six games.
