WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- DCPS says Woodrow Wilson High School will not be able to take part in the playoffs and Turkey Bowl after investigating one of the football players.

The investigation determined that 17-year-old Nico Jaleel Robinson was a non-resident, making him ineligible to play football for Wilson, Melissa Salmanowitz the DCPS PIO said.

"Wilson will forfeit the games when this player was on the field, including two league games," Salmanowitz said.

Since the high school has to forfeit the two games the team will no longer be eligible for the playoffs and the Turkey Bowl.

9News learned that Robinson was also arrested on Oct. 14 in connection to multiple armed robberies in College Park, Md

Anacostia will now play Dunbar in the Turkey Bowl on Thursday.
