Maryville State Champions

Honestley have to see first who is eligible and then watch them play. Farragut and Hardin Valley have a lot of talent so I look forward to the battles.

 

The best teams I've seen were the Kat Huson Ravenwood teams and the Hunter Thompson Brentwood teams. I would've love to have seen the 2009 DB team but that was before my volleyball time.

What if they move? Hypothetical.

According to TSSAA, it doesn't matter if there is a change of address for a kid with an athletic record. Incoming freshman don't apply to this rule.

I disagree. If they have a valid change of address they are ok. The dad of one of the players bought a condo to have a residence. The Hames own k2 if that rule applied it would affect all club players.

Chill is correct if the Jay guy coached them in any type of club team or summer league they will not be eligible with a change of address. This is assuming they are not 8th graders. This rule has been put into place to help stop AAU bball recruitment. Ask the 3 former bball coaches at Harriman about it.

Change of residence is trumped by a coaching relationship in the past 12 months. It could be as little as one training session. This is from Gene Menees at TSSAA.

I can't believe that is correct. Jay runs the entire club, he works with all of the players. These girls only changed schools to play for Jay. This is not a fair rule. Why punish these players for wanting to get better?

Not punishing the players. The rule is designed to stop club/AAU/travel baseball/etc coaches from influencing school choice. The girls in question are leaving their home school to go to the school where the club director coaches. This rule makes it very clear that the TSSAA believes this is recruiting. They believe it is blatant recruiting to the point that a change of address doesn't outweigh coach influence. It was designed to stop a certain Nashville private school basketball coach from getting players he was training to transfer. Whether he was influencing or the kid/parents made a decision doesn't matter to the TSSAA anymore. If a kid has been coached/trained/worked out in the last 12 months, the kid can not then transfer to that coach's school.

That is wrong. They have the chance to play for a great coach. Why should they be punished. I think given who these athletes are, and that it is Maryville, an exception will be made.

The rule might seem unfair from one side, but the other side doesn't feel the same. I am not a believer in transferring when a school has invested a spot in a certain individual that could of went to another kid who lost the opportunity to be a part of that team. Now another kid or two will lose a spot because of the transfer. Too many have forgotten that the kids should come first in high school athletics.

 

Plus it has been stated by k2 that they don't need high school anyway. So why bother with transferring.
