Read today's article in The State newspaper about the Ridge View H.S. football team and then ask yourself, "Am I more confused after reading it?
Here's the article by reporter Lou Beziak. Click here.
Did the Blazers play three ineligible players or not?
¶3 says "an investigation" revealed the team did play three ineligible players. The reporter didn't state whose investigation.
4¶ says Richland 2 submitted its own findings that three ineligible players played. Did Richland 2 self-report?
The issue is the lack of an official change-of-address. I had heard several months ago that there were players from another school in the District who were playing on the RVHS team. It wasn't important enough to me to follow up. I don't care about any sports - high school, college, or professional.
¶7 SCHSL Commissioner Singleton says RVHS claims there were bonafide address changes. But wait! Richland 2 says there weren't.
What's the famous movie line? "What we have here is a failure to communicate."
Strom Law Firm represents Ridge View High School. Wait! Not the District? How does a high school end up with a lawyer? Did the school board approve that?
Why is there an appeal if the District agrees that three players were not eligible?
Monday is a second appeal. When was the first appeal? How long has the ineligibility question been on the table?
