The Ohio High School Athletic Association says game officials erred when they denied a football player who has no legs from playing last week.
Bobby Martin is a senior at Colonel White High School in Dayton who was born without legs. Referees told his coach at halftime of Friday's game at Mount Healthy High School in Cincinnati that Martin could not finish the game.
Bob Goldring is an assistant commissioner with the athletic association. He says the referees erred on the side of caution and did not want to see Martin get hurt.
Goldring says a doctor cleared Martin to play prior to the beginning of the season and remains eligible.
Martin plays on his team's punt return squad. He moves down the field using his arms.
