Gator Commit Ruled Ineligible To Play High School Football This Season

They say what goes around comes around, but who knew Karma would come around this quickly?

Remember yesterday when we reported that Florida Gators commit  C’yontai Lewis did the Gator Chomp at former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton? 

Well, it seems that Mr Lewis got a little taste of Instant Karma. He found out today he was ruled ineligible to play high school football this year.

Lewis, who plays tight end, lives in Tuscaloosa. He transferred from Northridge High School to Tuscaloosa County High, and as a result, was ruled ineligible by the Alabama High School Sports Association (AHSSA), who also said all games in which Lewis played at Northridge during the 2012-13 season must be forfeited. 

That not only means football, but hoops, too. He was a forward/guard for the basketball team, as well.

The problem was the family had not completely moved out of one area into the other, which is called a bona fidé move.

Lewis doesn't understand what happened.

“I found out today,” Lewis said. “They sent a letter to the school. They said I wasn’t eligible. I really don’t understand why I wasn’t eligible, but they said I wasn’t. It was a shock to me.”

What happened was Karma is a you-know-what and you got caught in it, dude. Unfortunately, so did your teammates.

Hope Lewis learns never to count your Gator Chomps before they chew.
