District committee rules Nellor brothers ineligible

The Mount Vernon Tiger community was set on its ear last week when the news that the UIL District Executive Committee had ruled football players Cameron and Brock Nellor ineligible to play.

Mount Vernon ISD administrators immediately filed an appeal with the State UIL committee. That group was not scheduled to meet again until Monday, November 4, but has set a hearing for Tuesday, October 22 for this case. For more details from the October 8 hearing of the District committee, see the October 17 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
