Atlanta Public Schools Superintended Erroll Davis said that 14 out of 58 students on the football team at Grady High School used fraudulent addresses, according to a report from our media affiliate CBS46.

The superintendent presented the findings of an investigation into accusations of address fraud and recruiting violations at the Midtown high school on Wednesday evening.

Davis described the forgery by some parents as “masterful” and that multiple players gave the same address for a house owned by a coach, while some parents used fake Georgia Power bills.

Davis tuition bills are being sent to some parents to try and recoup losses, while civil or criminal charges are also under consideration. The superintendent said the investigation is ongoing.
