The offseason issues continue for the No. 1 high school football team in the nation.

Recently reinstated Bishop Gorman head football coach Kenny Sanchez has announced that he's dismissed Allen, Texas transfer running back Kirby Bennett and the lone returning member of the secondary Greg Oliver.

Coach Sanchez commented on both releases.

“I’ll keep it in-house, but he kicked himself off the team basically,” Sanchez said regarding Bennett's dismissal.

He didn't touch on the reason for Oliver's dismissal but he did say that he expects him to transfer to a different school in Las Vegas.

“I’m not sure where he’s going to school at this year. I think it’s going to be somewhere in town.”

With the upcoming season a little less than two months away, Gorman will have to get a young secondary up to task quickly because they open up the season against No. 4 ranked DeMatha Catholic (MD).

It's unknown whether transfer rules will keep Bennett from returning to his school in Texas and/or relocating to another program her in Las Vegas.

As for Oliver, students are usually allowed to transfer from a private/Catholic school to a public school and become immediately eligible, but a ruling has yet to be made in his case.
