Oklahoma scene: Judge rules against Brayden Scott's attempt to overturn OSSAA ruling

Sequoyah-Tahlequah QB remains ineligible, but attorney's next move is the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
From Tulsa World and Staff Reports Published: November 8, 2012

A judge ruled against Sequoyah-Tahlequah quarterback Brayden Scott in his attempt to overturn an Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association rule governing payment of individual summer camp fees.

District Judge Darrell Shepherd denied Scott's request for a permanent injunction Thursday to reinstate Scott's eligibility, overturn the rule and make Sequoyah eligible for the Class 3A football playoffs.

On Monday, the school forfeited its nine 2012 football victories, making the Indians ineligible for the playoffs. The bulk of the playoffs in all eight Oklahoma classifications gets under way Friday with first-round games.

“It looks like it's time for a `Hail Mary' pass,” said Scott's attorney, Chad Smith.

Smith said his next move was to the Oklahoma Supreme Court. He filed a writ of mandamus seeking to overturn Shepherd's judgment and had a hearing set with a court referee at 10 a.m. Friday in Oklahoma City.

The referee would then recommend to the high court on whether it should take action or hear additional arguments in the case.
