The students will be zoned to new high schools, with seniors given the option to choose where they go to school with a caveat.
According to GHSA bylaws, student-athletes must play for the school in the zone they live in. If student-athletes that are seniors wish to play, they do not have freedom of choice, but will be confined to where they are zoned.
As for the coaches, they'll be assigned to a new school as a teacher. Any coaching duties are up in the air at this point.
Felton Williams, has been the Indians' head football coach since 2009. He delivered the news to his football team just as they began Tuesday's workout.
"The kids were actually warming up, so I had to bring them in. I wanted to be the first to tell them. I didn't want them getting the news from the internet or text message or whatever. So that was very difficult to give them that heartbreaking news," explained Williams. "You try to be optimistic and keep them motivated when they're hearing different things from different people in the community, and today, for them to get confirmation, it was extremely devastating."
Williams said he hopes to continue coaching by finding a spot on a staff as an assistant.
