    What is the criteria for this award? Anyone can see the statistics that the Des News has published. Why is asking this question not civil? This seems to be an award that players are striving for. Knowing the criteria would be helpful. There is a criteria right? Or is it just an opinion? Just looking for some clarity.

    UHSAA's rules have exceptions. I too wish they were better at the whole process. However in this case, what the parents had to do in order for her to be eligible, is to fill out forms that the move was for a specific reason other than for her to play at X school. Financial Hardship, Job transfer, or one that is very common- "to be closer to family" (one not used in her case I am sure, but often used to go around the UHSAA rules)

    Sounds like a great girl, but my question is how come her eligibility wasn't challenged by UHSAA. Seems like when I read about some of these other athletes whose family moves into different high school boundaries, they become ineligible to participate. Just doesn't make sense to me. Even her classmate the Mika kid couldn't play for Lone Peak last year even though his family resides in those boundaries. Go figure. Shouldn't anyone be able to live where they want and then attend the school that's boundaries they live in???
