Former CCHS football players Kwasi Kirkland and Justin Williams have been ruled eligible to play for Ft. Dorchester by the S.C. High School League.
“Based on the information provided to us by the schools, our investigation found the two students to be eligible under league rules to participate as transfer students at the school they are now attending,” said SCHSL official Skip Lax. Questions were raised about the two students’ eligibility to play for Ft. Dorchester based on SCHSL enrollment/residency requirements.
Dr. Melissa Crosby, Principal of Colleton County High School, presented information surrounding the transfers of both Williams and Kirkland to the League office in late July.
