Robinson ruled eligible for West Monroe

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 Sports) - The LHSAA has ruled that after a thorough investigation, they could not find proof that Cameron Robinson's move from Ouachita High School to West Monroe High School was for athletic purposes and they did not find evidence or proof that any influence was placed on the mammoth offensive tackle to move from Ouachita to West Monroe High.

The investigation found that Cam's mother has been unemployed since the first of the year and needed a job to take care of her family and has since found employment in West Monroe.

However, the investigation found that Robinson and his family were given a tour of the West Monroe fieldhouse by Don Shows. Also, Bakari Guice, a non faculty coach at West Monroe, and Deldrick Ding, a rebels coach, were part of a group that attended the Alabama spring game with Robinson.

The LHSSA ruled these were two violations found in the investigation. As a result:

 

  • West Monroe High School football program has been placed on disciplinary probation for a year 
  • The school will be fined one thousand dollars and billed for the cost of the investigation
  • Cameron Robinson is declared immediately elegible to play
  • Coach Shows and principal may must attend a certification class.
  • Shows was also suspended for the first two games of the year and Guice is prohibited from coaching for a year in the LHSSA.

 

Ouachita principal Todd Guice issued a statement to KNOE 8 Sports Department, saying, "the school holds Cam in the highest regard and wish him the best."

Their concerns center around the actions of adults pertained to the rules of the LHSSA. Guice says he regrets that the principal may have been forced to seek this ruling and he has the upmost respect for her.
