HENRY COUNTY, Ga. -

A Henry County girl who was told she couldn't play football at her private school won't be returning this year.

Maddie Paige, 12, played as a sixth-grader at Strong Rock Christian School. Her mother says the school's CEO gave several reasons to why her daughter couldn't play.

On Monday, Maddie updated her "Let Her Play" Facebook page that she has decided to be home-schooled this year. She hopes to play sports through recreation and travel leagues.
