Tyner has forfeited football victories over Soddy-Daisy and Central after self-reporting the participation of an ineligible player.

Rams coach Wayne Turner said the player was academically ineligible and that he reported the information to school principal Carol Goss and the TSSAA on Tuesday.

"He needed to pass six classes last semester and he only passed five," the coach said.

The Rams' now have a record of 0-6.
