    I am neither pro or anti Charter. Frankly dont know enough about it other than it seems to make some people crazy in the smaller classifications.

    Couldn't be farther from the truth and I will admit without hesitation that I dont follow the landscape of HS wrestling so let's get that out first. First- All star teams dont work in football. The top tier teams get transfers but by in large it's the foundation of the 3 and 4 year kids that fuel the success. Unadvantaged?? I will use an example from this weekend. Met a kid. 6'3 210 lbs with a solid base, wide shoulders and moves like an athlete. Spent the last 2 years in a HS program that won 4 games in 2 years and the culture surrounding the program could best be described as apathetic. This kids family moves him to Charlotte and I can tell you with 100% certainty that had they done this 2 years ago where this kid could have benefitted from a structured strength and conditioning program and been around coaches and teammates invested in a winning culture he would be on the top of SEC recruiting lists. You want to make it harder for that family to help their kid succeed with the gifts God gave him?? Sorry....cant do it. Why not focus on why so many kids are leaving programs? Been to Berry? Been to South Meck before Evan's. Sorry...the system has let the kid down not the other way around.

    Which is essentially what this whole issue is about. Wins and losses...nothing more. Its coaches and fans mad because they didn't win a title. Zero to do with the best interest of kids or families.

    Zero wrong with my mindset and there is nothing extreme about the scenario above. It's real life decisions that play out every day. I just took the sports part out because sports always inflame more passion into the equation and in the end it's the parents job and not you or the administrations job to be concerned with the motivation of why a parent moves a child. It is the educators job to teach and yes coach the children who show up to the very best of their ability and not their job to legislate the why and how of parents moving. Stick to teaching. Are some of the motivations poorly thought through? Of course but once again, they are not your children. This is not exclusive to sports. This is cultural for better or for worse. Spent sometime talking to a parent yesterday who is in the trumpet scenario except replace trumpet with QB. Kids parents are overjoyed at the decision the made and it comes at both a financial and time loss but they made the decision in the best interest of their kid and they are raising two wonderful boys. Stellar parents and the QB is a natural born leader. You have ZERO clue what their situation was and yet your comfortable painting them with this huge brush of teaching their child poor lessons. How incredibly arrogant of you. Let parents raise their children how they see fit and let teachers, band directors and coaches concern themselves with doing their jobs.

    Been a Cub fan since early 70s. Question for you. I have a son who is a dynamite trumpet player. HS district that I live in loses a great band director and the band suffers huge losses. My kids performance in school along with his music development suffers greatly. I love my home and my neighborhood and it is a terrible time in the market to sell. I rent a home in a district with a nationally recognized band director. Kids performance turns around and he even earns a music scholarship to Juilliard . Did my kid quit on his band members or did the system quit on him? Did I teach my child a poor lesson or did I act in his best interest? Lastly....why is it any of your business why I did any of it.....Its not your kid.

    You consider it a problem. I call it life. I never will understand why it would be yours or anyones business how I choose to raise my family or where I choose to live. Your right....let's be adults. People move their kids for school purposes all the time. It is often times the #1 reason why someone buys a home where they live. The reality is top notch athletic programs can be just as valuable as top notch educational ones. The only time a kid moving is a " ridiculous problem" is when Johnny 4 star can run, catch or throw real good. The other 98% of transfers nobody knows or cares about. If a family is moving their kid for what they believe is a better opportunity it is simply nobody's business where they own a home. Period.

    So....If I own a home in Charleston but move my family to Charlotte and rent a home for 6-12 months my kid cant play ball??

    Culture change

    After spending 3 days in Alabama at the Hoover 7 on 7 which attracts a ton of top flight programs I am blown away by this. The size and strength of these outside kids just is crazy. Kids that would have been power forwards or DE's now are running and jumping off the field and it's pretty intimidating. Some of these kids look like they are ready for the NFL combine right now.

    What constitutes a " bonafide" move?
