National roundup: Ambulance denied access to field; School forfeits district title
A few interesting national high school stories popped into my e-mail the other day.
The first was about a principal in San Jose who denied an ambulance access to the football field after a player was hurt - he suffered a blow to his neck and helmet.
Considering the all attention paid lately to concussions, I don't think that was such a smart more.
And secondly, Venice High School in Florida was forced to forfeit all of its wins, plus a district title, after it was found to have several violations, including:
- Allowing a student who had falsely said he lived in the school district to play on the team.
- Allowing at least two ineligible students to play on the team.
- Allowing a student who lived outside the district to play on the team after he moved in with a student who lived inside the district
- Allowing an assistant coach to house two players.
