MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Trezevant High School’s football season will resume after being put on pause for an investigation launched after the administration discovered grade discrepancies.

The principal discovered the discrepancies while conducting an academic audit to make sure all student athletes were taking the right classes to graduate.

The district wouldn’t go into specifics of the investigation, but it led to the football team deciding to forfeit all its past games and all future games until the investigation was complete.

However, the TSSAA found no violations, so the team will end up practicing and playing as normal.

The only game Trezevant will forfeit is the Sept. 29 game against Memphis Academy of Health Sciences, which it didn’t play.

Trezevant head coach Teli White has been suspended during the investigation. At this time, he said he has not been reinstated.

Another coach and a staffer also remain suspended with pay.

Shelby County Schools released the following statement Tuesday:

“The District is diligently working to complete its investigation at Trezevant High School; therefore, no details about the outcome of the District’s investigation are available at this time.  The TSSAA, however, has reported that no violations have been found involving the Trezevant football team, so practices have resumed and the team will play out the remainder of the 2016 football schedule.  The only game this season the team will have to forfeit is the September 29th game against Memphis Academy of Health Sciences.”
