FHSAA: Gulf can appeal in October

The Florida High School Athletic Association stood firm Thursday by not adding Gulf to the Section 3 appeals hearings in Bradenton.

Gulf principal Steve Knobl said Wednesday the school hoped to be a last-minute addition to appeal the one-year suspensions of Anclote transfers Ty'Shon Peters and Kris Aratchiysky.

The next appeal is scheduled for Oct. 7 in Bradenton, which means Peters and Aratchiysky will miss a minimum of five games (Hudson, River Ridge, Ridgewood, Sunlake and Land O'Lakes). If the appeal is successful, the players could potentially return for the Oct. 8 game against Pasco. 

The impact to Gulf is significant considering Aratchiysky, a senior, rushed for more than 800 yards and eight touchdowns for Anclote, which finished 0-10 last season. Peters' versatility and talent made him a threat at several positions including quarterback and receiver. 

The decision coupled with Gulf's quick search to replace former coach Jay Fulmer, who resigned for his role in the recruitment of the two players, has made for a challenging start to the season.

Knobl said interviews to replace Fulmer will take place today with an announcement by Friday. The candidates to replace Fulmer are current assistant Ken Hollar, former Seven Springs Middle coach Tim Boggess, former Land O'Lakes assistant Tom Carter.
