Does This Seem Unsavory?

This story got a small amount of attention here but not what it deserved.

This tweet was sent by Villa Angela St. Joseph Football this past weekend. They brag of the number of football players they have recruited and mention there are still a few outstanding "offers."

I can't believe this is what high school football has come to. I would be embarrassed to be a part of the VASJ community.

I'm not a huge private school fan, but I'm also not really worked up over some incoming freshman. I don't really get the whole feeder school thing. They've got to start some time, right? Some people here won't be happy until every private school player recites the catechism and produces a baptismal certificate to prove they aren't recruits.

Pretty tacky to describe them as "commits" though. Priorities!

It is actually pretty common for kids to attend Catholic school up to 8th grade, then go to public school for high school. So my guess is, they are emulating what high school kids do when the move on to college. Since no one is compelled to go to a private school, all of their kids have to be recruited.

Most catholic schools (at least in SWO) refer to all incoming freshmen as ďcommits,Ē regardless whether they play sports or not.

As an alum. Itís honestly good we are finally getting the kids back into the school regardless of interest. And from a Football perspective it was needed considering we havenít fielded a true freshman team or jv team in almost 10 years. I agree itís in bad taste to refer to them as commits/offers. Offers is an invitation to attend the school as itís around this time they pick schools and most of these kids played for feeder school Ss.Robert and William in Euclid consisting of kids from Our Lady of the Lake SSRW St.Jerome and St.Alís with those schools not sponsoring a football team all within 5-10 minute driving radius. And I can confirm 100% that there are NO scholarships involved... They have to at least maintain a School GPA requirement which is higher than the OHSAA mandated to even be eligible for extra curricular activities including non athletic groups. In hindsight itís a sigh relief knowing that our football program is rebuilding to where it should at a consistent competitive program. Besides you have to promote your school somehow with a high demographic and with how Euclid City Schools and CMSD are in academics and having to compete with bigger names schools like St.Edward, St.Ignatius, Benedictine, Lake Catholic, and NDCL.

They also have to outbid the maniac down the street for the best players or they will never field a decent team.

Hey Mac'n beaner,

Why don't you just worry about your own school instead of bringing up others? I'm sure the VASJ community will be just fine at their tailgates this coming season as well..............

As a product of a private school, there is nothing unsavory about this, it's what they do.

And the OHSAA doing nothing about it has nothing to do with their lack of testicular consciousness, and everything to do with the confines of which the private school sectors operate.

oK Mack is a well-know idiot/troll, although...

This notion that private schools HAVE to recruit is complete BS. Maybe 30 years ago was different, but in this era parents are more than well aware of school choices and available schools in their area, and are obviously free to contact/research any and all at their discretion.

In that regard, today, the rules should be NO DIFFERENT between public and private schools. Ie. regarding initiating contact.

If the eeeeevil private schools are stealing "your kids", it's only possible because there's something lacking in the experience your school is offering. That's the real problem.

Not entirely. There's still a lot of families of feeder and non-feeder schools who see "private school" and $8k+ yearly tuition and immediately write it off not knowing 1) many private schools offer academic scholarships based on grade school GPA and entrance testing; 2) most, if not all, allow for a payment plan. While it's still a lot of money, it's not like you need to drop $8+ plus all at once. There's other things too.

I see how you roll.

When I expose the dirt on Massillon's football program, you see me as a troll.

But, when I shine a light on the dirt on a different program, you're jumping on my bandwagon.

By the looks of that tweet, it looks like one of the main questions on that "entrance testing" is "Do you play football?"

Embarrassing.

That is willfully ignorant Taco. Less affluent (or poor) families of bright students, and/or especially parents of athletic kids, are acutely aware they offer financial assistance. That is common knowledge among everyone.

Not trolling St. Joe nor accusing them of wrongdoing. Just responding to the notion that we need 2 sets of rules.

The only thing you expose on Massillon threads is your troll ***.

I can tell you for a fact that it is not common knowledge. Sorry. Maybe to those who post on Yappi, but that's a pretty damn small sample size. And there's a lot of students who aren't bright or athletic.

Above average intelligence, I wouldn't have considered 14 year old Taco to be bright. 14 year old Taco definitely wasn't athletic. I ended up running cross country. Yet I was recruited to my alma mater.

Again, if they can "steal your kids", the problem isn't them, it's you.

Its a sad but true fact that many communities could never win with home grown kids so they have to recruit. I wish it were different but its is no longer the way is used to be. When it does still occur, it adds a special dimension to the victors.

Some schools recruit and recruit and still can't produce a title. So those recruits don't achieve their goal and miss out on playing with their childhood friends. Sad.

It asks nothing about extra curricular interests at all on the placement exam. Source.... a recent grad who took the same placement exam. Go cry how things are unfair like all the other snowflakes around the country.

Most on the team have all played football together in grade school for a local as stated by CB ďdesignated feeder schoolsĒ with it being Ss Robert and William in Euclid. Right in our backyard. So if you think we are taking kids from out of small towns, you are sadly mistaken. Because about 90% of our students come from local catholic schools around Euclid/Cleveland

And in all honesty if that was the case from my previous post, the CB numbers would of bumped St.Joes up a division or two but instead kept them right in D-V

Impressive that you can somehow know what all of these people know. But your point doesn't change the fact that after 8th grade, they have to make a decision. And to that, each child would not know specifically what kind of aid they would qualify for.

Maybe you should concentrate about the "dirt" in your community.

If everyone were to take their heads out of the sand, it wouldn't take the FBI to figure out what's going on here. VASJ wanted to restore numbers to their football team so they utilized a concerted and targeted search to lure kids to come play for them. I say "concerted" because they mentioned "all the people that put so much hard work into this process." And I say "targeted" because they were immediately able to identify these kids as football players as soon as they made their "commitments."

This isn't what high school sports are to be about.

I find it to be clumsy may be but it's just semantics , no different than coaches and leaders of club soccer or AAU volleyball organizations speaking to each other after making their offers to kids " HMM who has committed ?

Nothing unsavory about it , just the reality of things in private organizations . I am not one to think that the catholics and privates 'RECRUIT" players in terms of coaches seeking out kids and asking them to consider going to a certain school , I think it's more the school itself AND the program that sells itself and other kids and families they know that has more influence.

Catholic fans are competitive with each other in terms of what kids go where and often wonder whether everything is on the up and up . { Are schools taking more off tuition for talent than the others are giving them an advantage for instance} I think it is just more semantics myself

So , is this an easy lay-up ripe as a 4 day banana type case to nail them for recruiting Mackbinner? Hard work ? recruiting is hard work as we know, but I am not real sure that HS coaches are working late recruiting players
