High school students robbed!

This petition had 12,923 supporters

 We are a small town with a big heart. Our heart was stolen from us yesterday due to the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) officials incorrectly calling a touchdown an incomplete pass. Furthermore, to add insult to injury the referee lets the Call stand without any discussion or consultation with his crew of officials chosen to officiate a State Championship Game. A game of such a lasting magnitude just can’t be allowed to be decided by such a gross level of incompetence.

Our community is a tight-knit community that has been previously devastated by loss of industries and economic recession and we are trying hard to rebuild it. Our county consists of a myriad of professions from migrant workers to doctors, but what unites us the most is Friday Night Football! 

Our children work hard and we are tired of our children being overlooked because we don't reside in a larger metropolis and can't afford some of the luxuries other students have readily available. 

We are asking that the Executive Committee of the Georgia High School Association overturn the officiants ruling on the play and allow that instant replay be admissible in High school championship games. We are not asking for an apology but a change in policy.

Finally, we are asking for more oversight and accountability with GHSA and create a body under the Governor's office which will be impartial and not biased toward one competitor over another.
