Since it is all about the kids, and all players have the right to play, and feel good about what they do! Both teams friday night should only play third and fourth string players! The game doesn't count anyway! Save the starters for a real game, I bet they would understand! I think the coaches should work it out ahead of time, to not make a circus out of the game! Don't run up the score.
tnfootballmom, to file a complaint for each school, you would need a real name and facts, on each team! good luck!
Tssaa does have some odd rules, example Georgia boys play baseball all year long together, and a lot of Tn boys playing on summer teams will get their butts kicked in the early summer games. However I believe if Tssaa really had it out for coach price, a six game wipe, could have been a year or two suspension for the coach!
I always thought high school, for the most part, is a four year time in your life where things really start to happen, and to make a good start for your future. I really question how much of an inpact one year, even at the great SMHS, will be for what is ahead for this young man! I really do wish him the best of everything.
A bigot is a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from their own! What you smhs folks are saying, is that you cherry pick your students. This huge 6'2", 240 pound star football player didn't move,so what is the difference? 5 schools in 4 years! And by the way I really don't care for Scooter either!
I'm sorry fpsub, last night I had a sore throat and fever, and realy didn"t care about my spelling! I will do better next time! Just checking, did I spell BIGOT ok?
You mt folk, whom ever said that you accept, everyone who wants a better education, ask Scooter King, and his son, Colby, who's family has/had a hair salon, up there! After a semester, he was made to go back to his home school, at East Ridge, where he is a star baseball, and basketball player! Smoke them apples, and prove me wrong! Their is a MOM up there, that didn"t want her son to loose a starting spot on the baseball team!
I thought this was very interesting,from TSSAA rules:Responsibility of the Principal
Section 7. The principal of each school, in all matters pertaining to the athletic relations of his/her school, is responsible to this Association. Administrators must realize that they have more responsibilities than the general public to understand the purpose of high school athletics and the principles behind the TSSAA rules, and they must maintain that level of understanding and purpose when dealing with the general public and students.
The principal shall exercise control over all finances, the scheduling of contests, and all other matters involved in the management of the school's athletic program. Any school whose athletic program is managed by a non-school group shall not be eligible to hold membership in TSSAA.
The principal shall furnish to the Executive Director such information as may be desired concerning eligibility of
contestants, participation and reports on officials. Failure to comply within a reasonable time shall subject the school to suspension, fine or other penalty. Any eligibility list shall remain on file in the principal's office for a period of not less than five years.
The principal, assistant principal, or athletic director shall attend the meeting for all administrators annually.
Failure to attend shall result in a warning. If an administrator does not attend the following year, the fine shall be
Section 8. All games shall be properly supervised to insure sportsmanlike contests. The host school shall be
responsible for providing sufficient security to insure orderly conduct on the part of all spectators. Visiting teams
shall be accompanied by the principal or someone designated by the principal. If the game is played on a neutral field and neither team is designated as the host team, the competing schools shall share the responsibility of providing sufficient security.
Member schools are responsible for the conduct of their own fans and students at every athletic contest,regardless of where it may be held.
The coach and principal of each of the schools participating in an athletic contest shall file a report immediately with the state office if there is any unusual incident involving poor sportsmanship, during or following the game, on the part of players, coaches, school administrators, game officials or spectators.
There is a copy of the letter to SMHS, from the TSSAA BOARD, AND IT STATED Our staff received several questions about the student-athlete’s eligibility from Principals and Athletic Directors during Administrators’ Meetings in the Hamilton County area. Each individual stated that the family was not living in the Signal Mountain High School zone and there had been no bona fide change of residence that justified a change of schools. After receiving so many questions, we were obligated to check into the situation in hopes of proving that the information submitted did justify a change of schools to Signal Mountain High School.m Check it out!
Fire the Principal, fire the coach, who cares, think about it, the lives and hopes of fifty to sixty fellow players were just ripped apart, which none of them had a part in this. And yes, I am an outsider, with nothing to gain, I just feel for the kids!
