    But didn’t the Jenkins kid from Harrison County play for both Scott County and Harrison County in the same season?? I think it was 2014/15...

    Yes, you are correct.

    You sound really bitter about this.

    Is there even anything that should be done? A kid that left, came back, and never played with the other school. Did he play summer June ball with Newport?

    Not bitter. Just saying you have kids who were committed to the school and working hard together and now a kid is coming back only because he has to.

    What do you suggest Snapp do?

    I often hear this comment. I don't think anyone earns a position just by showing up, even in high school.

    I always read on here how good Coach Snapp is, so I’m sure he’ll figure it out in a way that all parties involved will be happy. Though, I’m sure no resolution involving this young man actually playing will make the district and region opponents happy.

    Dont know the whole story and honestly dont care. He is back at Newport and will help the team whether Snapp makes him sit out a few games or not. Newport is one of the top 4 teams with him and top 10 without him.

    I agree no one deserves a position, they earn that position with hard work and hustle. HSBballfan24 said the young men were committed to the school and working hard TOGETHER to create team chemistry. He did not describe their dedicated participation as "just showing up". I think he meant, how does the rest of the team feel about playing with a teammate who has not exhibited a desire to want to be their teammate? Until he was forced to do so. Good luck to them all for a successful season.

    I think the first time he pulls down 15 rebounds, all will be happy.

    Word on here was he scored 32 against PC in a scrimmage. I’d say all were happy with that... coach/players included.

    If anybody thinks for one second these kids don’t love playing with each other, they’re sadly mistaken. These boys LOVE playing together.

    Even if there was turmoil at first, Coach Snapp does a great job pulling a team together.

    There sure are a lot of assumptions being made here. Who said he did or didn't WANT to come back? Who said he did or didn't WANT to leave? We're talking about a kid here, and not some college-age kid either. Kids are subject to all kinds of advice, decision-makers, guidance, whatever. Unless you know the kid, what makes you so certain he should be punished or even slightly scolded for the events that took place? We sure are judgmental lately.
