Summit Academy has been banned from the Utah high school football this year by the state’s governing body. According to the Deseret News, the Utah High School Activities Association made the decision after a panel of principals held a hearing on recruiting allegations against the 2A school.
A story on the newspaper’s website states:
“The hearing examined two incidents in which a Summit Academy assistant football coach texted two students who currently attend and play football for Copper Hills High School, a 5A school in West Jordan, encouraging them to transfer to the 2A school in Draper.”
Last year, Summit Academy finished 6-5, losing in the opening round of the 2A playoffs.
