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.
