Sorry curious george, but not all of us are from Utah County. Rules were broken
and the UHSAA chose not to enforce their own undue influence rule. I am a huge
proponent of play where you live. Open enrollment applies to academics,
athletics are a privilege and when you recruit to put a team together that is
indeed breaking the rules.
Sorry folks, no matter how distasteful or unfair you see it, if no rules were
broken it does not change anything. The ironic thing for me is that Orem and
Provo have been the biggest complainers about Timpview and their supposed
recruiting yet when you talk to them about their basketball program the players
are referred to as transfers. A double standard but what the heck, no rules were
broken. Open enrollment or play where you live, whats it going to be?
Completely 100% agree UCAggie. Well said.What gets me is how caught
up the media is with it all. They absolutely love it. Here's an idea, go
cover a story of a high school team that plays with the kids they are dealt and
does the best that they can with what they have. That is high school
sports, not the AAU garbage that the media outlets keep covering in Orem.
@number35 - All Orem starters are from other schools. Yes, maybe the Orem
starters have attended OHS for 2-3 years and funny how they all moved into Orem
boundaries when coach Holt was named the coach or the following year. 1 still
lives outside the boundaries so I should say most moved into Orem boundaries.
Not one of them will be around or have anything to do with OHS in 5, 10 or 20
years other than a name on diploma and a trophy. Very temporary
arrangement...for all 5. Proud American is spot on referring to the Orem squad
as a local AAU team.
It's even more crazy to look into how they wound up at Orem numer35. But I
am guessing you already know the story.Totally agree 100% with Proud
its crazy how all the starters have been going to Orem high now for 2 or 3 years
depending if there are juniors or seniors. they are not from diffrent schools.
Ditto what Proud to be American said. And I'm proud of the Deseret News
for finally allowing the truth to be published about Orem High.
You could change the article heading to 'Local AAU team beats Nevada High
School team'. Not an even playing field for these out of state teams to
come in and play a team from Utah that has so many kids from different schools
on one AAU team.
