OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (FOX13) -

Olive Branch High School quarterback Ross Trail can play ball said family attorney Steve Farese after a stay was issued by a Grenada County Circuit Court judge Thursday, but the Mississippi High School Activities Association still regards him as ineligible.

Farese said the stay allows Ross to play for the Conquistadors pending an appeal on his part to the Mississippi State Supreme Court.

Earlier Thursday the circuit court judge ruled against Trail's family, dismissing a lawsuit saying neither he nor his parents had standing to appeal the Mississippi High School Activities Association's decision ruling Ross ineligible due to a residency violation.

Ross had moved from Wynne, Ark., to Olive Branch, Miss.

But later in the day, Fareese told FOX13 News the same circuit judge then granted a stay in the case, which will allow Trail to play pending an appeal on his part to the Mississippi State Supreme Court.

The junior quarterback is regarded as one of the Mid-South's top signal callers in the class of 2015. He has led the Conquistadors to a 3-0 start this season.

But later in the day, Fareese told FOX13 News the same circuit judge then granted a stay in the case, which will allow Trail to play pending an appeal on his part to the Mississippi State Supreme Court.

However, late Thursday afternoon The Clarion-Ledger Newspaper reported that the MHSAA still regards Trail as ineligible, and that Olive Branch could face penalties for playing him.

The Conquistadors travel to Louisiana to play Shreveport Longview High School.
