The 2016 Class 2A State Champions

Recommended Posts

Do we refer to Marion County as the state champions since they were the runner-up? Do we refer to Waverly as the state champions since they were clearly the second best team in the state? I know who I will not refer to as being the 2016 Class 2A State Champions.

If they are stripped of their title you won't have a state champion. It will simply be vacated.

Well that sucks especially for a school like Waverly. They were clearly a state championship caliber football team last year and got cheated. Vacating a title doesn't make up for the memory of a lifetime that those kids were cheated out of at the end of the day.

Bassy is right. I wouldn't want a title handed to us like that anyway. If it was proven true it's a raw deal for the kids from MC, Waverly or whoever else would have had a shot. But it's an even worse thing for the kids that were manipulated for personal gain from a staff or administration. Until proven otherwise Trezevant is your state champion.

It is not just 2016. 2015 plus the article stated that 131 athletes over the past few years this was done to. It is a sad situation. This past fall there was proof but the powers that be swept it under the rug. TSSAA has to investigate not just take people's word.
