Former Kickapoo quarterback Kylan Mabins was deemed ineligible to play for Glendale after his transfer this summer. He is now asking the courts to let him play.

Mabins, a senior, has petitioned for a restraining order against the Missouri State High School Activities Association, its board of directors, Springfield Public Schools and its athletics director.

Through his petition, the senior requests for a preliminary injunction that would halt his restriction on his ability to play football.

According to the petition, a hearing was held with MSHSAA in the days before Glendale's season-opening win over Waynesville. He did not participate in the game.
