Players at farming convention causes high school football forfeit
A Missouri high school football team was forced to forfeit after a scheduling conflict with a farming convention.
A Missouri high school football team will forfeit its first-round district game because too many players will be attending the Future Farmers of America convention in Louisville.
South Holt, a winless 8-man team in Missouri's district three, told would-be first round opponent Stewartsville that because of a conflict with the farming convention, they would have to forfeit.
South Holt only has 78 students enrolled at the school in Oregon, Mo. and it is difficult to field a competitive team with so few students. The Knights were outscored 515-62 in nine games this season.
In addition, injuries have piled up for the Knights, and several players have quit.
Still, it appears they would have fielded a team had the conflict not arisen, as Stewartsville coach Corey Creason was told that the lack of players was partially due to to their attendance at the convention.
