JACKSON, Ala. (WALA) -- The Jackson High School principal told FOX10 News the school's football program self-reported a violation to the Alabama High School Athletic Association for having an ineligible player during two of recent games.

As a result, the principal said, Jackson will have to forfeit the wins against Satsuma and Wilcox-Central.

Principal Ken Harbuck issued the following statement on the matter:

We discovered that we had a player on our roster that did not live in our district. This was not an intentional error, but it is a violation of the rules. For the integrity of our program we self-reported this violation to the state high school association. As principal at JHS I take full responsibility. Since this player participated in two games this year they will be forfeited. These games are Satsuma High School and Wilcox central High School.
