Secrecy shrouds Kansas college’s decision to cut Fort Scott football

Fort Scott Community College terminated its football program after a tumultuous season.

Fort Scott Community College’s once proud football program collapsed amid poor on-field performances, high personnel turnover and a player’s death.

The team’s downfall went from the top-ranked program to nonexistent in 12 years.

Secrecy and unanswered questions surround the decision, which was made after a closed-door meeting of school officials in the southeast Kansas town.

President Alysia Johnston and the FSCC Board of Trustees announced the program’s end Tuesday night. They primarily blamed limited resources, without elaborating on what resources they were referring to.

Cutting the program comes after a season marred by the death of Tirrell Williams, who reportedly suffered a heat stroke during a practice.

The school has yet to release communications related to Williams’ death requested by The Capital-Journal in September under the Kansas Open Records Act. Likewise, local emergency services declined a verbal request for dispatch records of 911 calls connected to the practice where he collapsed.
