    Yeah, but it has nothing to do with the fact that you support private schools...

    If you want example of a public school taking a kid immediatly.

    Covington Holmes High School last year 9th region winner in basketball. A public school mind you. Had two starters who were on opposing 9th region teams varsity roster the year before.(Greg Rice - Holy Cross, Nate Edmonson-Simon Kenton). Both transfered to Holmes last year played immediatly and hence won the regional title.

    Don't act like this is a one way street.
    No hard Feelings, but Greg was a great addition to the bulldogs team. I do have a question for ya, What city does Greg live in? I already know the answer, but I thought I would throw it out there. How many kids has Holmes lost to Holy Cross or CCH over the years. And Nate's brother Chris was already at Holmes and graduated from there. We have lost alot more kids to privates than we have gained from them thats for sure.

    It doesn't matter what city he lives in. Greg never moved after he left Holy Cross and went to Holmes. Nate's brother playing for Holmes doesn't matter either. HC hardly ever gets anybody from Holmes Greg was probably the first person in years. I can name you a couple of more players that I grew up with who weren't studs but played football at Holmes and graduated from HC feeder schools.

    The point is these kids did nothing wrong, but to quit paying for education and attend the school in there district for free.

    I don't see how that would be different for them leaving a public and going to a private. I'm not mad that they did it, but I don't like the double standard.

    The difference is that going to school is mandatory, they must attend school, its the law. Therefor if they cannot or choose not to pay for thier education they must attend the school that they live in.

    Once again compulsary education is the culprit here.

    I'm confused here , why are you dancing around the quesiton.

    I asked what would be the difference in a kid transfering public to private playing right away , than private to public. Both players I listed eariler were on varsity schools elsewhere in the region and transfered to Holmes and were major parts in the schools regional title. Without them they don't even make it out of districts last year.

    Oopps sorry, didn't read the question correctly then. There is no difference, I believe that both would be ineligable, or should be. Unless they physically moved into a new district, with a "good faith" move. If not they should "I believe" sit out one year. Isn't that why the Highlands boy was ineligable?
