A college football coach is making headlines, but it has nothing to do with his team. Bill Cooke, who heads the Missouri Southern football program says he’s suing Joplin High School and the Missouri High School Activities Association because they are making his son miss a year of football. Officials from Joplin High School told MSHSAA that the Cookes moved from Joplin to Webb City because Webb City has a better football program. According to MSHAA guidelines, a student is ineligible if they change schools for athletic reasons. The Cookes says the move was for academic purposes. Jason Cooke is a junior honor student.
