Cardinal Ritter High School in St. Louis let an ineligible player play in their season opener when he was supposed to sit it out due to getting ejected from the 2018 Class 3 State Championship. So, the school fired everyone and canceled their undefeated season, per CBS Sports...
The RB was given the suspension after being ejected from last year's title game, but the team found a way to disguise Jackson, or so they thought.
Instead of his normal No. 4, he wore No. 24 and went under a freshman named "Marvin Burks." It was Jackson's tattoos that ended up giving him away. Jackson, as well as head coach Brandon Gregory, both went along with the lie that the junior didn't play, despite him actually putting up 109 yards on the ground and scoring a 56-yard touchdown in the 32-21 win.
Gregory told the Post-Dispatch that the imaginary freshman Burks, "earned" the start and that "it was his time to play ball." Jackson also put his acting skills to the test, telling the newspaper that "watching last week, it wasn't fun at all. It gave me a spark."
As a result of the incident in the most recent game, Cardinal Ritter school president Tamiko Armstead decided to void the entire season. The school also announced that every person on the coaching staff has been "permanently released."
