Adam Baum Cincinnati Enquirer Published 2:31 p.m. UTC Aug 23, 2018 Some of the best high school football in the country is played in Ohio. The same could be said of Florida, Texas, California and Georgia – the only states that annually produce more blue-chip, five-star college recruits than Ohio. The only difference is Ohio is the only one of those states that without some form of spring football practice. Maybe, by that math, Ohio doesn't need spring football. But if we had it, would the rest of the country be chasing the Buckeye State? Ohio already ranks in the top 5 in the nation in Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees and has nine Heisman Trophy winners (tied with Texas for the second most in the country).

Share Tweet Share Email Comments Print As the high school football season draws ever closer, The Blade is marking down the days until the first Friday under the lights on Aug. 24 with a countdown to kickoff. Here are seven top potential storylines — from off the field to on it — entering the 2018 season. 1. How will the temporary restraining order, issued by the Court of Common Pleas in Hamilton County, that prohibits the Ohio High School Athletic Association from utilizing a component of its competitive balance process ultimately impact the 2018 Ohio football playoffs?

Richard Obert Arizona Republic Published 3:23 p.m. UTC Jul 17, 2018 Will it ever end? Or at least show signs of reversing? When the Arizona Interscholastic Association two years ago adopted a new transfer rule, the hope was to curtail so many athletic transfers. The rule states that athletes must sit out the first 50 percent of the season before becoming eligible without moving residences for first-time moves and ineligible 100 percent of the season for second-time transfers (if not given hardship appeal). But according to numbers azcentral sports obtained from the AIA, when the new transfer measure was put into the AIA bylaws for the 2016-17 school year, there were 3,973 transfer forms processed. That was an increase of nearly 500 from the 2015-16 school year when there were 3,482 transfers. This past school year, there were 3,606 transfer forms processed by the AIA, the second-highest single-year total. The AIA did not break down transfers per sport, but a new data … [Read more...] about Arizona high school transfers for athletics remain high despite penalties
