TN Mom's Facebook rant triggers 3 game forfeitures

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A mother's rant on Facebook about her sons' messy room has sparked the forfeiture of 3 football victories by Perry County.

The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association declared offensive linemen Rodney and Ryan Belasic ineligible after discovering their family still has a residence in Henry County.

TSSAA Executive Director Bernard Childress said Perry County coaches and administrators saw the Facebook posting and alerted the organization, according to The Tennessean (http://bit.ly/oWRYIB ).

Childress said Monday that the players' mother complained on her Facebook page, asking how two boys could mess up their room so badly "when they're only here on Saturday and Sunday."

Perry County had to vacate wins over Cornersville, Forrest and Lewis County.

Perry County was ranked No. 2 among 1A teams in this week's Associated Press prep poll.
