    Muledriver New to the forum. I wanted to respond to your Aug 6 remark on Mrtvl Artesian 2016 football prospectus. Losing to Franklin was one of our only shots this season. I thought we might have a chance against Mooresville until they tied with Greenwood a couple weeks ago, and as you know, Greenwood put it to us. This year is a total rebuild year with almost half the varsity being sophomores. My son is a sophomore whose grade won the conference in eight grade and beat Southport in a travel tournament with the freshman class also at the top of the conference the last two years. The current sophomore class and freshman class have a ton of potential coming up provided the football program can retain the players until their junior and senior years. The program is having a tough time retaining seniors for multiple reasons. These last two varsity seasons have been devastating and demoralizing to players, parents and the community. We have a relatively new coach staff and a new AD at MHS with minimum senior player participation. This has to be rectified. I'm not sure if it is just a cycle or goes deeper. I can't speak for last year but this season we have a lot of 15-16 yr old competing with 17-18 yr olds. That is tough any program let alone 5A. The concern from the parents at freshman and sophomore level is extremely high given some of the talent coming up. We have a great opportunity in the next two years if the program can function in the best interest of the team/program and not in the best interest of individuals. On another note, the players no longer run up the hill at Jimmy Nash park...........

    I disagree. I liken the club level to the move to privatize education. The "choices" are only available for a select few, and those who cannot compete or keep up are simply dismissed. If sports were completely privatized, the number of participants would drop significantly. Scruggs father has spent a good deal of money in choosing this path. Even 10 years ago, to play on a competitive travel team, a parent would spend upwards of $5,000 a year. MOST kids simply want to be part of a team. There are a number of kids who need to be a part of something to avoid getting into trouble, and would not be able to afford to be part of a club team. The other issue I have with this is that recruiting for the college level is already out of control. A number of top recruits act as primadonnas in the programs they are in now because of the attention they are getting. With clubs at the high school level, that type of recruiting would be occurring at even younger ages. A high number of players on club teams, or their parents, view being on a club team as a logical step to being a D-1 recruit, with little to no understanding of what it actually takes. In my mind, the whole club scene is out of control. And in my mind, this article highlights what is wrong with sports today. People want to blame the IHSAA in creating class basketball as the reason for the downfall in popularity of the high school game. The fact is the club scene is THE culprit. And now, it has gone so far that a previously cherished honor, and honor some of the biggest names in the game have held, is no longer popular.
