NELSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A small southeastern college that started up a new football program last fall has had to forfeit its only four wins because of a paperwork snafu.

Hocking College in Nelsonville issued a press release last week saying the team had to forfeit the victories because it failed to submit required paperwork certifying the eligibility of its players to the National Junior College Athletic Association. The other three games on the schedule were losses.

In the release, according to The Athens Messenger (bit.ly/1ONGP6X), Hocking College President Betty Young says the season was a learning process and the college’s sports teams now are in compliance.

The team attracted attention because starting quarterback, Trent Mays, had been convicted of rape when he was a high school player in Steubenville.
