Warning: Piggy-Back Bandit jumping jocks

The Minnesota State High School League and the North Dakota High School Activities Association has banned Sherwin Shayegan from any MSHSL and NDHSAA sanctioned event at any member school in Minnesota and North Dakota. Shayegan has also been banned from school activities in Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

Shayegan has been known to mingle in a crowd at a sporting activity and, at a point in time, jump on the back of athletes. He did so at a soccer game in Montana where he was arrested and plead guilty to two assault charges. He was recently seen in Bismarck, N.D., where he attended three high school sporting events, and it was reported that he found his way into a locker room.

On Thursday, Shayegan was seen in St. Cloud and he was known to be in Minneapolis on Feb. 10.

Sherwin Shayegan is known to cause a direct threat to the health and safety of student athletes and others. Therefore, in my capacity as the Executive Director of the Minnesota State High School League and on behalf of the member schools of the Minnesota State High School League, I am immediately banning Sherwin Shayegan from all MSHSL regular season and post-season MSHSL-sponsored athletic and fine arts activities.

I have attached the notices sent to the member schools in North Dakota, Oregon, and Montana. A similar notice was sent to schools in the state of Washington.

If Sherwin Shayegan is found to be in your school or school community, I suggest that you immediately take action as appropriate to address his attendance at your events, contact the local police department, and notify the League office regarding his sighting.
