Russell Christian Academy could be stripped of last year's 13-0 season and 8-man football state championship.
Not long after the Meridian Star report was released, Russell Christian Athletic Director Larry Lippert told Newscenter 11 the school self-reported to the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools that they played an ineligible student-athlete throughout the 2012 season.
It was Russell Christian's first state title in any sport.
The M.A.I.S. will decide whether the Warriors will be stripped of their title or not on Friday.
