Six Suspended To Begin Season

(ZANESVILLE) — The 2011 High School football season is almost underway, and the Zanesville Blue Devils couldn’t be happier.

It’s been a rocky offseason for ZHS.  The Red, White, and Blue have been hard at work replacing 21 seniors from last year’s team, on top of handling a mild Impetigo outbreak during two-a-days and the death of freshman football player Grant Hickman.

The start of the 2011 school year may prove just as rocky, as on Monday, head coach Chad Grandstaff announced the program has suspended six players for the start of the season.

3 seniors have been suspended due to violation of team rules. Three other Blue Devils will miss at least four games due to academic ineligibility.
