Sabino Principal Russell Doty and Tucson Unified School District Superintendent Gabriel Trujillo offered appeals during the Executive Board meeting, explaining that they had taken steps to prevent those actions from happening in the future.
Doty and Trujillo admitted there was wrongdoing, but pleaded that the players who worked for the school’s first state championship in 21 years not have the trophy taken away from them
