Drillers impose post-season ban

FT. MYERS, FL – The UIFL has accepted the self-imposed penalties of the Eastern Kentucky Drillers.

As a reaction to several off-the-field incidents, at home and on the road, by some players, the Drillers are banning themselves from the 2012 season.

“While accepting the penalties imposed by the Drillers, the league will continue to investigate the incidents and will add to the penalties if deemed necessary,” said UIFL Commissioner Jared Lorenzen. “The league commends Eastern Kentucky for making sure the organization and its players are committed to holding up to a certain conduct standard.”

The resulting ban moves Lakeland into the UIFL South division championship game on June 25 against Florida.
