Just got word that the state Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Ross Trail, the former OBHS football player!! He should have been allowed to challenge the court decision and subsequently ruled eligible to play. This was the big ordeal that Principal Allyson Killough and others used against former Coach Samsel as a reason for termination of employment. Now, we have the Supreme Court of Mississippi that has ruled in Trail’s favor and the MHSAA Director Vinton who has stated there were no recruiting violations or any other violations on the part of Coach Samsel. Looks like THE TRUTH is finally being told!!! Hard to dispute sources such as these!
