Nevada Union Senior Cole Hannum who’s eligibility to play on the Nevada Union Miner’s Football team was challenged by his former Marysville High School learned today that the California Interscholastic Federation’s ban on his playing ball for the Miner’s will not be lifted. Nevada Union Football coach Dave Humphers says Cole Hannum took the news with exceptional grace.
Hannum filed his appeal over three weeks ago.
Nevada Union Senior Owen Sparks who lives in Browns Valley and who followed his father to Nevada Union when his father became a coach at the High school was also subject to a CIF ban. His appeal was heard last week and Coach Humphers says he expects to learn the results of Sparks appeal next week.
In an e-mail to KNCO, CIF Commissioner, Pete Saco, said it is not the sporting organizations policy to discuss transfer eligibility situations publicly.
