: : : : : : : : : Watching VP over the past couple years and it appears that Kenny Franklin has put this team together with his two sons, Evan Battey, and a couple other kids. Nice group of talent, but how many of these kids really live in the VP attendance area? Is CIF keeping a watch on this school? I hear the football program has a great number of players that reside outside of the attendance area. We know the school has terrible, outdated facilities, so why are all these athletes showing up at Villa Park?
: : : : : : : : You are correct with your statements. When something does not make sense, there must be dollars involved!
: : : : : : : C'Mon man
: : : : : : This is nothing new. Reynolds has been punished in the past for violations, yet there he is still, doing the same thing.
: : : : : Attendance area? Are you kidding? Where have you been for the past 20 years. Ever heard of the term "Open Enrollment"?
: : : : : Kids enrolling in high school do NOT have to live in any particular "enrollment area". Under California law they can enroll at any high school of their choice that has room to take them.
: : : : : The reasons why they show up are mostly likely athletically motivated, but since they are coming in as freshmen and there's no transfer involved, there's not much for the CIF to be concerned about.
: : : : Open enrollment has been around for a while, not 20 years. Never the less, if all schools have open enrollment then why does VP get more of those kids? Undue influence rules apply to incoming students as well as transfer students. While there is paperwork done on transfers that requires the previous school to sign off there is no such thing for an incoming Frosh. That doesn't mean violations have not occurred.

: : : OLU does the same thing, they recruit even harder now with their AAU connects. They are able to get away with it due to them being a private school.
: : Well Kevin, looks like most everyone knows you are just a low down, low life cheater at best.
: You have to give it up to Reynolds. He has taken in so many "homeless" kids. He is a saint. Can't coach a lick but he is a saint
I remember back in the 2000's there were years where VP had more than 3-6 guys transfer and most of them all moved directly to Varsity. In all honesty, that was, and is, the only way to compete against Mater Dei and RSM type programs. Never has won a CIF title though.
