BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Bakersfield College football program has gone under an intensely public look into its actions during the past two weeks.
Last week, the Renegades football program was given seven sanctions by the Southern California Football Association (SCFA).
Among the penalties for the football program was being stripped of its 2012 state title and having all wins vacated for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. The school also is ineligible for postseason play in 2013.
The sanctions stemmed from the actions of The Helmet Club, an unofficial booster club, which provided inappropriate lodging for recruits and payment of rent for players' housing, two of the program's violations.
On Monday, the Kern County Community District Board of Trustees voted unanimously to appeal the SCFA's sanctions.
