FHSAA: No further action against Gulf

The Florida High School Athletic Association is satisfied with Gulf's self report into the football program's recruiting of two Anclote players and will take no further action.

In an e-mail to the St. Petersburg Times, FHSAA spokesman Seth Polansky did not specify if the two players - Ty'Shon Peters and Kris Aratchiysky - were eligible to play football. Gulf principal Steve Knobl suspended the two players pending the FHSAA's response to the school's self report, but allowed both to practice while awaiting a decision from the state.

Gulf's actions included accepting the resignation of former coach Jay Fulmer, who admitted improper contact with at least one of the players. Knobl maintained contact with FHSAA executive director for compliance and eligibility services Denarvise Thornton and Pasco County athletic director Phil Bell through the process, which in recent incidents has produced favorable results.
