    Seriously? You are delusional.

    I have a friend who has twins and he moved here from Michigan after a bad divorce 10-12 years ago. He had custody and wanted to send the boys to Trinity - they were heading into their senior year. Not an athletic bone in their bodies, I can say this because he's a friend but like dad. Did you want Trinity to say no? Would have been an awful business decision for Trinity to say no.

    The boys had a wonderful senior year and are very good role models in the business world. So glad that didn't take your advice.

    Seems like the elephant-in-the-room issue is that the feelings about transfers are different depending on whether or not the student plays a major sport (really just football or basketball.) X had a senior transfer swimmer a couple of years ago who was one of the 4 fastest guys on their team. So there was some other team member who would have gotten to swim on a relay but didn't because of the senior transfer. No one raised an eyebrow. The kid moved to town and went where he wanted to go. Which is absolutely fine. If that kid had been a 6'11" post player or had Rondale Moore-like speed, we might still be talking about him today. But I bet no one one this site even knows his name.

    so long as transfers happen within the khsaa rules, I have no problem when or where kids transfer to.

    Do you think the rules benefit kids and don't need change. Or do you think KHSAA should look at making changes to better benefit kids?

    I do not know the transfer rules so it would be unfair for me to try to answer that part of the question. I do think think if you can benefit the kid without the benefit of a program for "recruiting" than I am all for it. If Wandale has more and better opportunities by playing somewhere other than Western Hills why wouldn't we support that?

    I do think KHSAA tries to support kids best they can. Why else would you let the top 4 teams per district compete in post season play? It is a participation medal. And the fact the KHSAA has let it go on this long only reiterates giving kids as many experiences possible for high school kids.

    And it isn't just football that the KHSAA tries to get every team into the playoffs. In every sport the KHSAA wants every team to get into the postseason playoffs. In fact, if we are calling these participation medals, there are fewer teams they get participation medals in football than any other KHSAA sport.

    When I speak of transfer rule not benefiting kids. I believe that a kid shouldn't have to change their address to change schools. I think a kid should have a freedom to choose to play and go to school wherever they want as long as the school they want to transfer to will allow them in.

    No adult has to change address to change coaching jobs. So why should kids have to move to better themselves.

    So you would support this scenario.

    Freshman: Play at Western Hills
    Sophomore: Play at Lex Cath
    Junior: Play at Boyle County
    Senior: Play at Trinity

    Home address: Harrodsburg, KY

    Yes. I believe its up to the family to decide the road the kid wants to take.

    Now do I believe the kid would be very successful in transferring 4 times. No, but why should there be rules to stop it? They can do it at the college level.

    I think the number of kids transferring more than once during their time in high school would be very small. Yes there would be some. But not enough to make a difference.

    No way. That completely ruins the integrity of the game. It promotes everything that’s wrong with our society. Kids who didn’t get their way would be transferring left and right.
