Recruit for the school, not the specific sport. I wonder if you recruit this hard for the academic decathlon student.
It’s a group effort
Football coaches recruit football players
Basketball coaches, basketball
Hockey coaches, hockey players
Admissions, general students.
Not sure how that’s a difficult concept to understand
No one at Benedictine is breaking any rules so either keep crying or just go away.

btw, Benedictine consistently has one of the best academic challenge teams in the area

Good then go play in your own playoff system along with the other recruiting schools. While you’re at it, go build your own stadium to play in and quit using public school facilities.

Gentleman,
When talking to a student about attending Benedictine. I never start a conversation about a team sport. I talk about the Outstanding atmosphere & focus that an all-boys catholic school can provide. I talk about the exceptional education Benedictine can provide. I talk about 10 to 1 student teacher ratio. I talk about the catholic, religious, experience. I talk about the life-time friends that you make. I talk about 92% of all graduates go on to a 4-year college. I talk about 50% of those students go on to a masters or better. I talk about all of the success stories Benedictine has. I talk about the convenience of having the option of an activities bus or van provide the student a ride home and are dropped off in their driveway after any activity they are in. I talk about all of the great alumni that have attended Benedictine. I talk about all of these advantages to the boy & his family.
Most importantly I talk about becoming. A Man of Benedictine.
Ora Et Labora.

We play by and abide by all rules by the OHSAA and that with that includes playing in the state playoff system that the coaches agree with.

Should we also not use MLK Blvd to get our kids to school because that’s a public facility?

Go touch grass dude. Life is too short to whine on the internet about things that aren’t even that important.

Well said Greg these ignorant trolls have nothing else in their lives but to put two cents where it isn't wanted. Fbrox just happens to be an ignorant sad person

I agree it is whiny to complain about Benny recruiting, but Benny shouldn’t complain about being in D2 after the number of posts I’ve read about “public school recruits” in this thread. D2 is right where you belong.

Oh you mean the facilities we gett approached to use and we pay for?

I believe a catholic school won 1 of 7 State Football Titles up for grabs last year. Cry me a river

We are sending kids to Ivy Leagues, NESCAC’s, the UAA, so yes we do recruit very hard for academics.

And the academic challenge team has consistently been one of the best in NEO for 30 years if not more.

No they shouldn’t be in D2. Smallest or second smallest school in that Division. Some teams have double + the enrollment. I had a conversation with a public school in Cincinnati and they think it’s an overreach by OHSAA. The school has to reach outside its immediate boundary or it would lose all of its diversity.

D1-D4 have all had private schools in the state finals the last 2 years. Competitive balance is working as it should.

I read on this thread that “We play by and abide by all rules by the OHSAA and that with that includes playing in the state playoff system that the coaches agree with.”

So, yes, they should be D2. The public schools in D2 don’t get to “reach outside their immediate boundary” to build diversity.

Don’t be surprised if Benedictine is back to D3 these next few years.
Only 6 kids away from D3 in the last count and the roster is smaller than it was back then.
So D3 is probably where there should be for 2022

Competitive Balance will keep Benedictine in D-2.

My only problem with competitive balance is that it doesn't really hurt schools like Eds, Iggy, X, Moeller, etc. but they do hurt schools like Bene and TCC.

Also, you gotta be lying to yourself if you don't public schools recruit or pull from outside their district. The amount of people I knew who did not live anywhere close to the district of the public school they went to is insane🤣🤣

Open enrollment schools do. But they pay the same price with competitive balance as private schools. They are one in the same in my mind.

As far as D1 is concerned, I’m of the opinion that a school with 700-1000 boys should be able to find 30 very good football players to compete with the D1 private schools.

If you think closed enrollment schools don't get people outside of their district you are living in denial
