The thrill of a lifetime for some Illinois high school football players is now being investigated by the state’s High School Athletic Association.

A FoxNews.com report, claims that the Illinois High School Athletic Association is investigating a visit by Browns quarterback Colt McCoy at the Sacred Heart-Griffin in Springfield.

McCoy stopped by the school in March, according to the FoxNews.com report, to talk about his faith and football at the annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes banquet. Over the course of the visit McCoy threw the football around with several members of the school’s football team, according to Ken Leonard, athletic director and football coach at Sacred Heart-Griffin.

“It was unbelievable experience,” Leonard said in the FoxNews.com report. “I’m sorry if any rules were broken, but in this instance, if I was wrong, I don’t want to be right.”

Leonard was referring to the rules because McCoy’s visit prompted a complaint to the Illinois High School Athletic Association from a rival team as to wether the visit constituted an illegal off-season practice.
