    And the coach saying the player lived in Ashland is telling, too.

    Was the player paying out-of-district tuition to go to Greenup?

    Why wouldn't he just attend Boyd or Blazer, unless, you know, the AAU ties to the assistant were more than just a mere coincidence.
    Yeah the whole "living in Ashland" thing leaves me scratching my head. I'm not knocking the Greenup County school system at all but it just does not make sense to make that commute daily if you don't have to.

    Like I said, superintendent believes transfer info was incorrect or doctored.

    The Greenup athletic director announced on Friday night that Mike Raby would be the interim coach but I guess they changed their mind.

    Usually if a sole interim coach is named and that particular person shows they can do the job, that person is promoted to permanent coach.

    Also could be a stipend issue at play.

    My guess is this stops both of these issues.

    Isn't this whole situation similar to what occurred at Thomas More College a few years back that involved the Moss girl, and led to the forfeiture of a National Championship title????

    My guess is this sort of thing goes on all across the state in high school sports much more than what most people think.

    My guess would be that you are on to something with your thoughts.

    Tells me the two Coaches likely knew 100% what was going on. But if the neighboring district had not complained, nothing would have been done. IMO this was the Superintendent’s way of trying to keep the school district out of further sanctions.

    I hope the team can pull together, and this doesn’t over shadow the post season for them.

    If the kid never should have been ruled eligible anyway for a VARIETY of issues (connection to AAU coach hired as assistant, questionable new address), then the school will be LUCKY if there aren't further sanctions.

    I'm shocked forfeits haven't been mentioned or loss of stats/records.

    I look at this as the super stepping in and saving the program from itself.

    Should their regular season record be all losses, thus altering district seeding?

    I would imagine eventually the games Dryden played in will go down as losses once the KHSAA makes a final ruling. That won't happen until sometime during the off season though.

    No.

    If Greenup was 2 and then they drop all the way to the bottom, would you want to be a 1 now facing a last-seeded Greenup?

    Makes Greenup's road harder, but doesn't exactly reward other teams.
