Should a sex offender be allowed to play high school football

Should a sex offender be allowed to play high school football?
That's the question Vemillion Ohio officials are asking.
A 17-year-old who admitted to gross sexual imposition - he (drunkenly) had sex with a girl who was passed out - wants to play high school football.
The decision to keep the student off the team is solely in the district's hands. The Ohio High School Athletic Association does not have a policy for student-athletes with criminal records.
There is no mention as to whether the kid is a star player. Though he and his family are being sued by the girl, who has since graduated.
My hope is they tell the kid no.
My bet: the kid is in pads and on the field by kickoff.
