I don't have a problem with bringing in players just don't throw stones when you live in glass houses! Maybe Brossart is still mad at Cordia from some of them butt kickings they used to give them in cross country back in the glory days. Just don't try to act like you are above everybody else when you are doing the same thing it makes you out to be a hypocrite. That is just my opinion! With that being said what address do you want your shirt sent to I can cut the sleeves out for you and I guess that will make it a 4/5 tee shirt.
    Brossart would be one of the few and I mean few private schools that do NOT have kids coming from outside their feeder schools. In fact they have to protect their own students from being snagged by another private school in the area.

    No. Their previous gym that they played games in for many years was damaged, I think by a mountain rock slide. They are playing their games this year in the old Hindman High School gym. I'm told that the Hindman gym is still in good condition.
    On a side note, Hindman High won a basketball state championship in the 1940s. And their county rival, Carr Creek, won one in the 1950s, the last state title for the 14th region.

    To act as if Private schools have an advantage over public schools is laughable. Cordia proves this. Public schools are free. In larger districts its easier to transfer to a public school than a private school.

    I believe the perception that private schools have an advantage is fading. They don't. If anything, because of the new jersey clearing house that has to be used to set tuition, they are more constrained. kid who wants to transfer from, say, bowling green to warren central just has to get an address in warren central. A kid who wants to transfer from male to trinity and be eligible has to a. move. B. send financial info to the new jersey clearinghouse to establish what they "can afford" and then come up with the money to pay what the NJ clearinghouse says they have to pay.

    The differences are not only in the sports arena........................Its laughable to even compare the two (magnet schools and semi private) not included

    Please expand. Explain how a program, like, bowling green for example (not accusing, just using them as an example) in a large district is any different than a private school? Or maybe Louisville Male.

    there is no difference in schools who have good sports programs who are attractive for athletes (whether they recruit or not) and programs that aren't good in sports. If you move into their district, you get to go to school there. It's that simple. In many instances, schools have reciprocal agreements where you don't even have to live in the district. so a simple "change in address" gets you eligible when you transfer.

    There is no difference, in fact, for public schools, it's easier to get kids eligible. The # of transfers to publics for sports purposes is probably more than to private schools. It's been that way for several years IMO...

    Now, if you're talking about the small rural public schools, perhaps like Livingston county or maybe Bracken county. Then yes, you have a point. But those schools are already at a disadvantage. In the larger districts, where most of the winners come from, it makes no difference if you're a public or private school. If you have a good program and want to recruit, you can do it and odds are, nothing will ever happen.

    I think Paintsville's enrollment usually averages slightly over 200 students.
    Paintsville won in 1996

    Would someone explain to me how the Open Enrollment policy works in the counties that use it. I've never been clear about it. I was under the assumption that athletes can enroll at any school in the county they choose coming out of middle school and immediately be eligible to play sports. I realize that's also the same in any public school in the state unless there's a local rule against it. I know back around 2000 Breathitt had a very good 6'5 athlete that played as an 8th grader one week for the high school team and scored 12 points against Wolfe, them enrolled at Hazard and played on their high school team the following week----without a change of residence, and it was legal by the KHSAA rules.
    However, the difference in most counties is they don't have a population of 700,000 like Jefferson County. With that many numbers there's going to be talent to the max. A coach at the state tourney told me it wasn't uncommon in Jefferson middle school games to see coaches from around the county with clip boards taking notes. He said his school's baseball program had lost many kids to other schools.

    Unless there's some kind of control by the county board in place (and there very well may be, that's why I'm asking these questions) that gives a big advantage in sports to the popular schools on a county to round up basically an all star team. A population of 600,000-700,000 is an enormous pool of athletes that the rest of the state doesn't have.

    I'm im just asking for some enlightenment. I know Cordia is getting a lot of scrutiny on here, but what would be the difference if a team started 5 out of state players than one that starts 5 in-state and in-county players that aren't from the district or area that they're attending school?

    Hate? Seriously?

    That lame excuse isn't going to fly with me. You mentioned six players by name, only one of whom you said was "born and raised" in the district. I simply want to know where the other five came from and what brought them to Cordia?

    In the KHSAA's opinion, you are cheaters, and sanctioned. So there is that.

    Second bolded, play within the rules, and your kids won't have to deal with anything.
