    I come from this wanting BC to become competitive again. You hate to see a program with so much pride and tradition become so inept.

    As for redistricting, it is not a matter of if, but when. It will happen when the Superintendent and Board finally have the political will to do it. It is raised nearly every year and parents in areas to be impacted complain to the Board not to do it. So nothing is done. The socio-economic measure for any school (or district) is the amount of students that receive free and reduced lunch. The number of students receiving free and reduced lunch at Boone County and the schools that feed Boone County are so disproportionate to the rest of the Boone County schools it is laughable.

    Why is this important? Children receiving free and reduced lunch tend to be more transient. They move multiple times during their school career and it makes it damn near impossible to truly get your feeder programs where they need to be. The new rules for the NKYFL districts will help. There are players in Boone's youth teams that every coach in the league wants on their team. The challenge for Boone will be to keep those kids and have those kids want to go to Boone. Redistrict some more neighborhoods that have single family housing with more stable parents/kids and the ship could be righted. But, its going to take a long time for any coach. This is a five to seven year rebuild, not two to three.

    Who will be making the decision? The current HC is coach and AD.

    Bryson would help the program and team find an identity again.

    I’m nearly 100% certain that Bryson has not been officially selected. I do think he would be an outstanding choice - great person who loves football and kids. He is an experienced coach who would build an outstanding staff.

    That's what I figured, but I hadn't been on in a few days and saw that post from Rebel Dad.

    What about Trosper from Conner? He's another BCHS guy.

    Why would Trosper leave his program for a quagmire anywhere else?

    COME ON GURU...just something about home. It always calls people back. We always think we can fix those problems because it's where we came from!

    P.S. Let's be honest, Conner isn't the greatest job either. It's currently above BCHS but that maybe the only 5A/6A school its over in NKY in my opinion.

    James Graham, I feel your pain and passion. This is from someone that really doesn't know, is redistricting for athletic parity a legitimate reason to do so? Or, are there socio-ecomic diversity/parity reasons that make the process equitable for academic opportunity for all children within the same school system?

    I have a good friend in the system that says there are 15-20 children living in the woods that get on the bus every morning. Makes me want to cry.

    Redistricting will happen when the free lunch numbers and test scores are so disproportionate with the other three schools they will be forced to act. It will not have anything to do with sports. The free lunch numbers are already ridiculous as compared to the other three high schools, but to BC's credit they have done pretty decent with the testing. A real kudos to the administration and teachers there.

    I would like to see BW give it a go. But it is HARD for a para-professional to truly devote the time necessary to do it right. Boone County has that "mix" of kids from different backgrounds that has served Colerain so well for the past 25 years. The right person needs to tap into that mix and execute a 5 to 7 year plan. But again, with 4 County high schools, one catholic high school, two independent school districts (if you count part of Lloyd and Walton Verona), a soon to open STEM/Tech high school its just so watered down for any one of the high schools to be dominate year after year on the local stage let alone on the state level.

    I want Bryson as well. He could walk into the locker room and say “This is Boone County.” Will he get it back to the Alexander days, probably not but he could make them competitive and play with Rebel pride.

    I believe the STEAM/Tech school students will still have “home” based schools that they will contribute to athletics at if they want to.

    I believe at Boone County it is imperative that the head coach be a teacher in the building.
