The Gillette Camels open their football season on August 30th against Kelly Walsh, and they'll be without their starting quarterback. The Wyoming High School Activities Association has ruled that Camel quarterback Austin Fort will miss the Zero week game, after he was ejected from last spring's Class 4A Soccer state title game.
WHSAA Rules state that if a player is ejected from the final contest of the season, for unsportsmanlike conduct, he or she must serve the suspension at the start of the next season.
Fort received two yellow cards in the soccer State title game, which amounts to a red card and results in ejection.
Camel coach Vic Wilkerson says the Camels have other players competing for the opportunity to start under center against the Trojans.
