MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich., Nov. 7 (UPI) -- A Michigan high school athletic director said his team may forfeit two victories because a 21-year-old man posed as a student to play on the football team.

Mount Pleasant High School Athletic Director Jim Conway said his team and their parents are frustrated they might have to give up their two victories after player Javier Jones was unmasked as James Nash, 21, who allegedly used false documents to enroll at the school, WNEM-TV, Saginaw, Mich., reported Wednesday.

"They're as frustrated or if not more frustrated than the adults in this situation, which was good to see. I think that the kids have learned a valuable lesson. They're asking the questions 'why' and 'how' -- just as we are as adults," Conway said of the players.

School officials said they were working with a liaison officer and turning documents over to prosecutors for possible charges against Nash.
