Believe it or not occasionally families move from one house to another.  Lower rent, more closet space, a bigger kitchen, etc. are reasons why families move from one house to another.  Sometimes they move a few miles away and cross a boundary line that means the kids have to go to a new school.

Honstly, I'm done. The same people that slam any kid who goes private with even the slightest possibility that it's with athletic intent are saying things like this.  Really people, at least attempt to hide the hypocrisy by remaining silent.

I'm gonna ask this question again. Is he paying tuition to attend FH???? CMM52 is assuming he just waltzed into FH and started playing sports. As knowitall just mentioned, did his parents MOVE into another district? If he did, doesn't he go along with his folks. Someone find out before CMM52 has another fit.

Baptists and Methodists discovering Catholicism is completely different than packing up the whole family and moving into a new home.

C'mon, folks.  Kids move from public to public, public to private and private to public all the time.  For all kinds of reasons.  We only pay attention when the move involves a star athlete.  So families have the freedom to make these decisions without scrutiny or ridicule unless their child is an athlete.  CMM is right, if the transfer goes to BG, the football crowd is brandishing pitchforks.  But the hypocrisy doesn't stop there--if the same kid transfers to say, Bishop Carroll, it might not raise an eyebrow.  Why?  Because private schools are only troublesome when they're winning.

It's the point that if a kid leaves a public school for a private school no other potential reason is considered by anyone but athletic intent, but you see public to public and the same people find every other possibility but athletic intent.  It's just crazy to me.  In regards to moving, please, let's not act like people haven't changed addresses before in order to make a transfer work.  That is besides the point tho.  I'm only pointing out the hypocrisy that exists when it comes to students moving schools with what appears to be at least some evidence of athletic intent.

Did the family physically move from a house in Portage School District to Forest Hills School District?  If so, that is significantly different than a Presbyterian family sending its kid to a Catholic school for 11th grade.

You might be reading this all wrong.  I could care less why the kid left.  Families have the right, in my opinion, to do whatever they feel best for their children.  I'm simply pointing out the difference in some people's reactions as opposed to public to private transfers.  Again, no one has presented the facts but it does appear there could be suspicion of athletic intent.  If this kid went to BG, same dudes singing a different tune.

I know you don't care..thats your prerogative. I'm from Portage. You don't think I've had my taste of stacked teams..that the kids kicking our rear-ends where at that school because they were doing the right thing for themselves. This boy is no 280 pound shoe in to D1..he'll be lucky with a D3 baseball offer at best..
