We also had two more on Franklin Road reported that same day, he said.

PREP FOOTBALL -- LHS self-imposes football sanctions

Lebanon High football will not hold spring practice or scrimmages after it was determined the program violated TSSAA rules concerning off-season workouts.

Football coach Troy Crane is also subject to "immediate dismissal" should he be found to violate any TSSAA rules in the future.

By self-imposing these sanctions and cooperating with the TSSAA, Lebanon High avoided the possibility of more stern penalties being handed down by the governing body of Tennessee athletics.

According to a letter sent to LHS Principal Myra Sloan dated April 18, from TSSAA Executive Director Bernard Childress, it appears the team was working offense and defense on alternating days after school hours during a time when only weight training, conditioning and open facilities are permitted.
