It's time for the board / president, Ron Pribich (rpribich@nfm.net) to step in and clear this up, including what corrective action(s) are planned, IF there is anything to this situation.

Other schools let their problems fester till it was out of control and people that should have been removed, were left in place, while it seemed like they were waiting for the OHSAA to guide their response!

I know most Massillon fans were holding their breath when open enrollment was used to even the playing field and reach the state finals.

You KNEW the OHSAA was going to find a way to bring a recruiting case, AGAIN. Lets see if Plakas shows their actions for what they really are. AGAIN!!!

Q3. Bylaw 4-9-2 defines recruiting as the use of influence by an individual, either connected or not connected to a school, to secure the enrollment of a prospective student-athlete. That concept seems so broad. Are there exceptions to that rule?

A3. Yes. There are two specific exceptions which were devised and approved for the 2011-12 school year specifically to address the ability of coaches and other school personnel to have contact with students in their school districts or systems. Exception one of 4-9-2 allows coaches and other school employees within a public school district, which is defined as a single high school public school district, to have casual contact with, speak to, encourage, work with during the off season as permitted by regulations, etc. students in grades seven and eight who currently attend a middle or elementary school within that school district. The rationale for this exception is that those 7-8 th grade students are already enrolled within that public school district and thus it should be permissible for coaches in that district to contact them concerning athletic participation. Exception one also addresses coaches and other school employees who work in one of Ohio’s multiple high school public school districts. Because these districts are usually geographically large and encompass many 7-8 th grade

Rule is too broad for speculation. Unless something becomes public I really don’t think it should be talked about when we’re talking about high school kids.

The crux of the problem is THE BYLAW. The school shouldn't be penalized IF the recruiting was by someone NOT connected to the school!:

Bylaw 4-9-2 defines recruiting as the use of influence by an individual, either connected or not connected to a school

Can our attorney's have the case dismissed because we are being penalized for conduct, we aren't responsible for!

Makes a lot of sense since all of the kids except 1 have been at WHS for well over a year now.

At any rate good to see the momentum of this game change with the fumble recovery ! Not that it needs to be said but Brawley is the best overall player we have had in a long long time.
