It took several weeks, but the Cleveland High football team doubled its victory total for the 1991 season and removed an asterisk in the process.
Cleveland forfeited a win and a tie last season after admitting that it used an ineligible player early in the season. In the spring, however, the player's eligibility was reinstated by a City Section review panel.
Cleveland Coach Everett Macy filed his own appeal to the City this fall, and the official record has been amended to its pre-forfeit status. The Cavaliers finished 2-6-1 in 1991, improving from 1-8 before the record was corrected.
Losers in the process were Taft and Monroe, which had been granted the forfeit victories.
Taft tied Cleveland, 14-14, and Monroe lost, 24-8, to the Cavaliers. Consequently, Taft finished 0-8-1 and Monroe finished 1-8.
