Thank you for posting this link. I verified that my lens is not a part of this recall.

EyeAF was enabled at the time.

Thanks to the other person who referred me to the A7Info application. It reveals that for this image, the focus point was indeed on his left cheek/eye area.

This is pretty convincing to me. The camera/lens combination was not focused where it was supposed to be focused. I would guess that this is a lens issue.

The only other thing I can think of is Aperture Drive in AF. If this was focused wide open and then stopped down to F8, it could be focus shift. I don't know whether this is an option for the lens/body combo that you're using. That seems like it would have been a lot of focus shift for a not very fast lens, though... but not focusing stopped down might introduce other errors....?

Another person suggested that the player moved during the exposure... he's standing still and its unlikely that he moved even slightly. Besides, the strobes would have frozen him in place due to their brief duration. Next time I will try high speed sync to rule this out absolutely.

By the way, I have many images from this session with the same problem... it's not just one image I'm having the problem with.

Thanks to everyone who commented thus far... I really appreciate it.
