Adds Rinne: "You do feel sorry for the kids [from Vashon] that took part, but at the same time we're all supposed to play by the same rules. We thank you for doing the undercover work on that, and we thank MSHSAA for following through on what they're supposed to do."

Floyd Irons, who led the Wolverines to ten state titles, could not be reached for comment.

In March, the 60-year-old former Vashon coach was sentenced to twelve months in federal prison and five years' probation for pleading guilty to mortgage fraud. He must also pay $653,147.09 in restitution. According to his attorney, Sindel, Irons reported to the minimum-security "camp" at Marion, Illinois, at the end of May.
