ST. LOUIS ( -- McCluer North self-reported the use of an ineligible player on their football team this season.

Jason West with MSHSSA confirmed to News 4 the school self-reported the infraction last week.

"We did receive a self-report from the school indicating the use of an ineligible player," West said.

McCluer North, led by coach Leon McErath, is 6-3 on the year.

The Ferguson-Florissant School District said an internal review showed several players that were not included on McCluer North's Football eligibility roster.

"Upon further review we found that we had an ineligible player who had participated in several games," the statement said. "Upon discovering this error we self-reported to MSHSAA and have offered our opponent the opportunity to host the playoff game this weekend. We will continue to work with MSHSAA through this process."

The McCluer North athletic director is currently on leave. 

Earlier this season, Cardinal Ritter was found to be using an ineligible player. Their coaching staff was terminated.
