It started with an anonymous tip, but an investigation by the MHSAA and local police found a player from Lansing lied about his age so he could play high school football in Mt. Pleasant.
They finished with a 4 and 5 record, but two of the mount pleasant oilers wins may be stripped away, because one of their players was literally a man among boys.
"His doctored age made him 18 which he is clearly older than the MHSAA age with is 19 before September 1st"
Athletic Director Jim Conway confirms one player on the oilers shouldn't have been on the team.
21 year old James Nash claimed to be Javier Jones.
School officials say he forged his birth certificate, previous transcripts and gave a false address, all to play football for the Oilers, high school athletics officials say that's out of bounds..
"We check age, we check transcripts was he eligible at his last institution and all of those things because of the doctoring turned clear," Conway said.
John Johnson says this is not the first time someone has failed to meet MHSAA requirements even this late into the season.
"We have seen ineligibles wipe out an entire season, because it's not caught until after the season, sometimes it's caught in season, sometimes it's after the fact, every situation is different," said MHSAA communications director John Johnson.
In this situation Johnson says they'll do the right thing.
"All you can do is when you catch it, act."
The school removed James Nash as soon as they found out, but it's a revelation that could cost the team games and maybe even more on the field of credibility.
It's still not clear why Nash wanted to play high school football, but the investigation between the MHSAA and Mount Pleasant high school is ongoing.
It's also not clear if Nash will face any criminal charges.
