Guess who currently owns those parcels? New Salem Missionary Baptist Church, located on Cleveland Ave about 2.5 miles away. The county has appraised their land on Codet at roughly $750,000, if I have enough fingers and toes.

I don't know, maybe some of these COF founders had a dream they were going to be able to buy the land from New Salem, with the AME church vouching for COF's credentials, and this Larry Allen insurance group financing the deal?

In any case, it's interesting that COF has managed to involve two separate local church denominations in this affair.

They managed $1 from TWO supporters? That's laughably bad.

Looks like they owe quite a few people a lot of money, this is a comment from the This Weeks News article posted above:
"I work at the hotel they were staying at and can confirm this was all fraud. They never paid the hotel baymont Delaware off 23. Owe them $150,000 and bailed out without pay. Roy Johnson and jay Richardson is the master mind behind this fraud and has a warrant in Delaware Ohio for writing a fake check to one of the bus drivers they hired to transport the kids.. was a $4,500 check. Paul Williams was the head coach a a huge co defendant in the fraud. Misleading parents telling them crazy fake lies. I feel bad for the kids, they were mislead the whole time as well.

Some people have tweeted at Jay, but he doesn't respond. Didn't respond to the article's request for comment either.

I read that too. So I had to look up Brother Rice to see if they're still a power.
Ranked 700 nationwide according to maxpreps. As a reference Big Red is around 720

The last couple years Brother Rice has been decent, not great. Earlier this season they did beat Mishawaka Penn from Indiana. So the loss to COF was really shocking to people up here too.

Yes, COF 14 Brother Rice 13. Shocking.

Brother Rice was 5-2 going into the COF game.
I saw COF play vs Ignatius and they were not good at all.
Perhaps COF got an influx of talent recently

With a starting lineup like this, you'd think they could beat at least one mediocre high school team.

#1 Mario Agyen RB (Northern Highlands High School '18, Allendale, NJ)
#5 Shenuel Spence SS (Campus Magnet High School '18, Cambria Heights, NY)
#8 Kameren McMillan LB (DeWitt Clinton High School '18, Bronx, NY)
#12 Rodney Atkins II QB (Kennedy High School '18, Bronx, NY)
#13 Idrissa Nikiema RB (Kennedy High School '18, Bronx, NY)
#15 Zyear Sejour DE (Barringer High School '18, Newark, NJ)
#20 Nazire Bacon LB (Woodrow Wilson High School '18, Camden, NJ)
#24 Isiah Miller LB (Kennedy High School '18, Bronx, NY)
#31 Jaquan Baxter RB (DeWitt Clinton High School '18, Bronx, NY)
#32 Quentin Flowers CB (Kennedy High School '18, Bronx, NY)
#37 Marcus Manning LB (Bayonne High School '18, Bayonne, NJ)
#57 Kadeem Shabazz DT (Northview High School '18, Duluth, GA)
#88 Hosea Burnett WR (Hamilton High School '18, Hamilton, OH)
#94 Jason Smith DT (Hamilton High School '18, Hamilton, OH)

Should public school students, mostly minors, be required to participate in a very physical, extracurricular activity against college-age men? I don't understand why Dayton Public Schools are going ahead with this. What does Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth J. Lolli have to say about this? What does Superintendent of Christians of Faith Academy Jay Richardson have to say about this? I'm curious.

What exactly is this team? Obviously they have post grads on the roster but are they even attending any type of classes? If not then they would basically be just like a semi-pro team. How are any high school teams even playing these guys? There are just too many questions that need to be answered.

If I’m the AD I cancel the game and make an intrasquad scrimmage to raise money for a local charity. Why is it even a debate whether we allow HS kids to play football with a multistate All Star Team combined with Postgraduate players, none ofwhich are in school.
Really.....

Did Brother Rice actually play their starters knowing that this game was going to be counted towards nothing?

And expecting the Dayton Public Schools leadership to make a good decision made me laugh out loud.

But it counted toward the number of games they are allowed to play in a season. And that's what kids sign up for - to play football games.

Either there was misrepresentation going on or someone didn't do their homework on who they were signing a contract with.

Ditto. So now that COF has been proven to be a fraud, when are the founders going to be arrested?

Who has sued them for fraud?

It's easy to get a guilty verdict here on Yappi.

Well no one but having post grads and no physical school building indicates to me that this is a fraud.

I'm not sure it's against the law to start an "academy" to supposedly help kids who have finished high school to prepare for college. And for that "academy" to have a football team. Whether or not there was any misrepresentation going on - I have no idea.

To start an academy for that purpose probably isn't illegal but then why are they playing football against high schools and marketing themselves like an IMg like school? This whole thing doesn't make sense.
