PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A youth football team has been kicked out of their league after the coach played a 19-year old on his team of 13 and 14-year olds.

Number 84 reportedly is the older brother of another player.

He suited up on Sunday and took part in several plays before parents and coaches figured out what was going on.

The coach admitted he knew the player’s age and has been fired.

The youth team and a second team from the same group have been kicked out of the league for the rest of the season.
