TULSA, Oklahoma – After a convoluted series of events, wide receiver Kendal Davis will be playing for Tulsa NOAH this season.

Davis had been declared ineligible by the OSSAA after transferring to Tulsa Union from Sapulpa.

But Davis will be home schooled this season and play for NOAH, which stands for the Northeast Oklahoma Association of Home Schools.

Last week, the OSSAA Board of Directors upheld a previous ruling that Davis was not eligible to play high school football because he "did not meet any hardship waiver criteria."

"He (Kendal) was denied eligibility by our board at a September board meeting and the next day the judge did not order a restraining judgment to be filed against the OSSAA," said OSSAA Executive Secretary Ed Sheakley.

Davis practiced with the team Tuesday and Wednesday, and will be eligible to play in NOAH's game against Stillwell on Friday.

News On 6 caught up with Davis at practice on Wednesday and talked to him about the process he went through and the upcoming season.
