Even when the police do get involved nothing happens. A group of kids were caught by the police on the high school parking lot drinking and went to jail. Their parents picked them up and 1 of the boys played in the football game the next week. What is wrong with our school district these days? The administration needs to do something, besides having affairs, getting restraining orders and divorces. They need to focus on the kids! I know for a fact one of the basketball/baseball players smokes weed all of the time and has been completely wasted and pulled out of cars on the high school parking lot, but he's an athlete so it will all be overlooked. Wow, great sports role model for the younger kids to look up to.
Actually, Chase did not play in any of the games for the rest of the season(There were only two left). sad part is, the School and the Coaching Staff condoned it by allowing for this player to still receive his Letter and to also receive an Award for lineman on the year. Here is where they should have said no, but, all they did was show the rest of the Athletes that you can go out, Drink Alcohol, get arrested and still be considered the best!
By the School Policy, Jordan Miller should not be playing Basketball right now, but I guess that got overlooked. He did not receive the mandatory 3.0 Credit hours this Semester and was booted off the Basketball team last Thursday and allowed to return on Friday by School Officials. Jordan is a GREAT Kid that has made mistakes, just like the others in this whole situation, but, how does a kid with all this going on still be allowed to continue in Sports when the others are not able to? They(School Officials) can say all they want, but, the students have blurted it all over the net what the school has done for him to be able to stay in sports program.
3 Students were released and a 4th was told that he would not be able to continue. out of the 4, the two that were allowed to return to their Sport or Squad was a Teacher's Daughter and one of The Basketball Team's top athletes. And their tweets all mention how they were happy to be able to return to finish their Senior Season!
The two that were not allowed to return are not a teacher's child or does not have allot of money to throw around. The main thing, they are not being allowed to return to finish their Senior Season, like Brook Duckworth and Jordan Miller are. Just does not seem fair nor legal, As a matter of fact, it is illegal and could jeopardize everything for the cheer leading squad and the basketball team's season if MSHAA are decide to come in and do a full out investigation into the eligibility of these students.
Where is the consistency in all of this? The Fairness?
Understand, I am not saying anything wrong about any of the 4 students involved in this situation, they are all great kids, they are just getting caught up in all the political bullshit that goes on in our school system and it is time for this to stop.
People need to really fight for the equality and fair treatment across the board for Student Athletes and the things the school will do to hurt their future. If it's "All or Nothing", then it needs to be that way across the board.
I will imagine that this post/thread will be removed, because it will expose some of the other horrible truths going on in our School District. they don't like people telling the truth on here.
