Martinsburg QB ruled eligible by SSAC
Martinsburg quarterback Malique Watkins, who was ruled ineligible by the SSAC last month, had his eligibility restored by the state association Monday.
The SSAC said new information was obtained last week that showed Watkins was actually retained according to Berkeley County schools policy.
Watkins, who attended eighth grade in both West Virginia and Maryland, had received a court injunction allowing him to play during the interim.
Martinsburg (7-1), the three-time defending Class AAA champion, was fourth in last week's playoff rankings.
