Booneville football coach Scott Hyatt said his phone has been ringing off the hook all day after a national sports website erroneously posted that the Bearcats had forfeited Friday’s playoff victory.

The Bearcats defeated Newport 41-20 in the second round of the Class 4A playoffs. That is still true, Hyatt said, even though the game is listed as a forfeit on, a site.

“I’ve been getting phone calls from parents and kids all day asking what is going on with that,” Hyatt said.

Hyatt said he doesn’t know how the rumor got started or posted. He joked all the phone calls are driving him nuts, though.
