that might be the dumbest use of a tssaa rule I have ever heard...if that was the case then every program that was represented there could be fined!i dont know what the coach does/does not do. but i am aware that the TSSAA states in the rule book that the kids can only be on "one" league/team.
If the kids chose to go play football then WGHS would have been fined and lost any games that they might have won while the kids were playing fotball.
Think back to when SGHS had this issue a couple years ago with a couple girls playing in the church league and all the fuss that the TSSAA stirred up.
The whole point behind this rule is that you can't play in more than one league at a time for each sport. This means nothing about playing football and then playing basketball.
Basically, the coach wanted the boys to choose basketball over football and they didn't. The sad part about this story is that it happens all the time in all county schools and NOTHING is done about it!!
