The Glades Central High School football team has to forfeit three wins.

The Palm Beach County School District said the varsity football team used an ineligible player.

Sanctions from the Florida High School Athletic Association include the forfeited games and an undisclosed fine. The school self-reported the ineligible player to the state. According to the Sun-Sentinel, the player did not meet the 2.0 GPA requirement to play football.

"I realize that this is a disappointment to the players, the school and our community," said Melanie Bolden-Morris, principal of Glades Central. "However, we take full responsibility for the oversight and will fully comply with the FHSAA sanctions."

The Raiders, prior to the forfeits, had a 4-4 record this season. It's now 1-7. There are two games left on the schedule, including the Muck Bowl against Pahokee High School on Saturday.

Glades Central's wins came against Boca Raton, Wellington, Palm Beach Gardens and Dwyer. The district said the one win not forfeited is the one against Wellington. According to the Sun-Sentinel, the coach said the ineligible player did not play in the game against Wellington.
