Washington's Eric Woods set for hearing with IHSAA

Washington senior football player Eric Woods will square off with the IHSAA in court Tuesday.

Woods was ruled ineligible by the IHSAA in August for what they called an improper transfer from Adams to Washington high schools. He then lost an appeal last month to the review board.

Woods' mother, Angel Price, then filed a restraining order against the IHSAA and Woods was granted a temporary 10-day stay to play by the St. Joseph County circuit court until a hearing could take place.

Woods played in Washington's last two games because of that ruling. On Friday night against Mishawaka, he had more than 150 all purpose yard, including a 68-yard touchdown, to help the Panthers win a share of the NIC championship.

If Woods wins the hearing, he will be able to play in sectionals beginning this Friday against Clay. If he loses, he will be ineligible for the playoffs and Washington will be forced to forfeit the two games he played in, including the share of the conference championship. It was the first for the school since 1975.
