    Have heard this for a few years and just wanted to know if this is legal?  It has been rumored that Knox Catholic is getting business people to "sponsor" student-athletes so they can eliminate or reduce there tuition fees.  I wouldn't think this is legal since parents/guardian is not footing the bill.  However, the school is not giving financial aid, so is this legal under TSSAA rules?

    So, you are saying Ted Russell car dealership (or any business willing to do so) can pay for student-athletes to go to school at Catholic or Webb or CAK or Grace or Maryville and that is legal, as long as they give the money to the parent and the parent writes the check to pay for tuition.

    Wow! This is a very reckless topic. Why start a thread on something when you most likely have ZERO knowledge of the actual situation?

    How do you know if I have ZERO knowledge of the situation.  Could have a child that has been contacted by a "parent/sponsor" for all you know.

    Do you? Your original wording leads me to believe thats not the case. If you dont, then you have ZERO knowledge of the situation and are merely being a slanderous gossip.
