If Prop 20 passes...and private schools leave the KHSAA, will any public schools leave with them?
I'm not sure how it would happen, but why would schools like Highlands, Boyle County or any opponents to Prop 20 want to stay in the KHSAA? We all know that Highlands & Boyle County can win in football, where a difference in numbers means the most.
It is my understanding that a school governed by the KHSAA cannot play another in-state school that is not governed by the KHSAA. That would mean that, if Prop 20 passes, and if the privates leave, that Highlands would not be able to play Covington Catholic, Male / Manual would not be able to play Trinity / X.
Would any publics leave with the privates, or would they simply stay in the "new" KHSAA and be happy with their state championships?Advertisement

In football it would make sense, but would it make sense in other sports? I will have to think about this more.

No. They will not leave. They'll stay for all of the other sports and HOPE the proposal gets overturned.

Even at HHS, the decision cannot simply be based on football.

The only way for them to play, would be for Manual / Male etc. to drop out of the KHSAA as well. Will that happen? Is the rivalry between these schools enough to make the private schools stay in the KHSAA? I don't think it is, but it'll be interesting to see if Prop 20 passes.

If any public schools aren't scared. They are scared in the playoffs, but in the regular season where they can afford a butt whipping, it's ok.
Hey if you know you're beat, eliminate the competition. That's my mottoe to live by.
What a disservice these administrators are doing to these kids.
At least the publics are admitting defeat and inferiority.

If so, wouldn't that mean that the KHSAA schools (the publics) would not be allowed to play the privates who left the KHSAA? That is, if the privates just left the KHSAA altogether and started their own association.
