FORT SCOTT — Fort Scott Community College’s once proud football program collapsed amid poor on-field performances, high personnel turnover and a player’s death.

The team’s downfall went from the top-ranked program to nonexistent in 12 years.

Secrecy and unanswered questions surround the decision, which was made after a closed-door meeting of school officials in the southeast Kansas town.
