According to CNN affiliate WJW, Principal Nick Evans said Andre was suspended because he "wrote a mean and disrespectful poem about another student and our athletic director/head coach."
Julie Andre, Nick's mother, told WJW she met with Evans on Monday and was told the poem was bullying.
But on Thursday, Andre was told he was back on the team in time for the last two games of the season and could come back to school.
James Ritchie, superintendent for Rittman School District, said after reconsideration, Andre's punishment had been reversed.
Andre, a junior, had already served two days of detention, but they will be expunged from his record.
He seemed a little unsure as to what type of reception he would get from his teammates when he returned to the locker room, but hoped for the best.
"I haven't really gotten to talk to any of them yet about what they feel. If -- I mean, I'm sure they'll all be happy I'm able to come back and everything, but i haven't heard anything," he told CNN.
