Muscle Shoals and John Carroll receive post season gridiron bans

The AHSAA announced today that Muscle Shoals and John Carroll Catholic High School’s football programs will be placed on restrictive probation and ineligible for the post season in 2016.

The disciplinary action stems from self-reported recruiting violations.

John Carroll’s Donald Cunningham and Arthur Stokes, along with Muscle Shoals’ assistant Chris Balentine will be ineligible to coach next season.

Muscle Shoals has advanced to the post season in each of the last seven seasons including a trip to the Super 6 in 2013.

John Carroll is coming off a 0-10 2015 campaign.
