Maybe the coach was involved in the child/sex ring that's been operating in McKeesport for some time.

The toughest part of this type of investigation is knowing who you might be able to trust. Keep in mind if Jerry Sandusky was just a pedophile, being an assistant coach for Penn State would have enabled him to to have virtually an endless supply of young victims.
Part of the satisfaction of pedophiles is the exchange of stories and victims, much like what goes on in the child/sex/drug ring in McKeesport. The more powerful people you have involved the more difficult it is to investigate and prosecute. One well-placed member could easily order an investigation closed, or provide worthless information, or even worse, very damaging information that could set another person(s) up for a log time in prison.
Does anyone remember the apartments near the entrance to the Squirrel Hill Tunnels that were used by Allegheny County Judges and their mistresses? This goes back about 20 years. What County cop or detective is going to investigate that type of crime? None.

John Q, When are you going to stop ripping on Stockett. Did the kid ALLEGEDLY make a mistake? Maybe. Now he gets to spend the rest of his life paying for an ALLEGED bad decision (regardless of whether he actually did it!) No need to gloat, it just enlarges the perception of how big of a dick you really are.
The kid's only mistake was buying into the hype the coaches threw at him. Believing that he was invincible because he was told he was. The real failing was Ward not sitting him down and reining in the ego. Telling him the dangers of twitter, Facebook, rumors, and the like. That is what a GOOD, PROFESSIONAL coach does. He takes him under his wing and try's to nurture him into a responsible adult. Parents like Ed and Danielle can only do so much. I've talked to many parents who have gone through the recruiting processes and they all say it is mind blowingly difficult. They all care about their children and only want the best for them. Most of the time, these parents have a responsible coach who can aid them in the process. Unfortunately, I do not believe this was the case here.
Is Eddie the most mature kid, and reacting his best to this situation? Who knows. All I can believe is he was an 17-18 year old kid trying to cope the best he can. Don't rip on the kid for being what he is, a talented KID.
Btw. Holtzman is not blameless here. He was on the staff and should've been aware what was happening. HE HAD THE OBLIGATION TO DO FOR EDDIE WHAT SHORT DID FOR HIM! That is McKeesport Tiger football. The generations giving back. The family taking care of its own.
You want Tiger football to be TIGER football. Hire a Tiger this time.
Are you listening old man Holtzman. This time do the right thing.

It there some way to get these scholarships reinstated?

The late Dr. Risha could accomplish this in a heart beat. He could move mountains and close on painting company contracts.

Ward tried everything with this kid... sat him down.. pumped him up... took him unde his wing.. played hard ball. Even Holtzman tried. Ward even had LaDonne step in with the tough love. Stockett just said.. Talk to my Lawyer. Akron pulled it and now he can go to CCAC or to CVCC (Crawford Village Communit College) Holtzman tried everything with this kid, but he would not stop the drinking parties. in his defense.. he did not rape that chick... but his Parents are the one's to blame for al of his troubles. Not Jim, Mark and Mike.

Hmm. Interesting. For once I'll take you at your word as you seem to be sincere. Although, I will have to verify it through my network of Angels.
