The Garden City Broncbuster football team has forfeited three wins this season due to the use of an ineligible player, the college announced on Tuesday afternoon in a press conference.

The discovery of the ineligible player came during a random audit conducted by the NJCAA, which began in September. During the audit, the NJCAA found a discrepancy in a Second Year Signing Agreement form, which is needed for players transferring between NJCAA member schools. The form was not on file with the school, therefore rendering the player ineligble to play, according to the NJCAA. 

The identity of the player was not released.

There were no other penalties imposed on the GCCC football program.
