Could high school sports be coed?
The Indianapolis Star
Should some sports and certain positions in high school athletics be coed? Of course, we likely won't see an entire defensive line of girls suiting up for a football game. A female basketball center on a boys team would be a rarity. But a point guard? Sure. A wrestler, a swimmer, a cross-country runner, why not?

NHSCA seeking human interest stories
NHSCA
The NHSCA was approached by various national media outlets and asked to provide human interest stories that involve high school coaches, athletes, administrators, parents, teachers and/or students.

The stories can range from overcoming adversity to an outreach of love and compassion being demonstrated to the less fortunate.

This may be a great opportunity to get some amazing stories out there for people to see some positive things that are taking place in your high school community.

You can participate by simply submitting a written story by clicking here. If applicable, the student could also write their own story or be part of the story telling in their own words. For some of the extraordinary stories and with your permission, a film crew may be sent to your school.

Please submit your stories by Oct. 1. This can be a very exciting project and we thank you in advance for your participation.

Home school students have limited chances to play on school teams
The Indianpolis Star
When the Indiana High School Athletic Association changed its rule last year to allow home school athletes to participate on teams at their local public school, Trey Oetjen was intrigued. With a pair of talented twins, Josiah and Noah, going into their junior year, the elder Oetjen pursued the possibility of taking advantage of the new IHSAA rule at the local public school, Mt. Vernon. But it wasn't that simple.

Louisville, Mississippi: A 7,000-person cradle of coaches
USA Today
Louisville, Mississippi sits at the crossroads to nowhere in particular, a good 40-minute drive in any direction before hitting a main highway. Even by Mississippi standards, it's a small, rural, out-of-the-way town, with nothing to indicate that it would eventually become a cradle of high-level college coaches.

The Dallas Morning News
The buddies in the stands at the Allen game Friday discussed football with a distinctly out-of-town accent, but they still could've been mistaken for locals. Until, that is, they started gawking at the video board. There's a jumbotron at a high school football game? In Texas, yes. It's not unusual. But in Sudbury, Ontario, it would be very unusual.
