    Sounds like the athleticism is there if he's got the drive to make it happen. Could add some nice size to the DL. Is he more of a DT or DE?

    Add up the entire talent pool of the whole Metroplex - and about 20% of those kids, give or take, could afford to move to SLC. From that pool, I'd say SLC gets about 1-2 impact move-ins a year, maybe 3-4 if you factor down to the middle school level.

    What other "system" in Texas might get an occasional move-in?

    Of course, when a kid moves in, a dedicated thought-he-was-gonna-start kid gets pine time and a slap on the back for being a good practice squad player.

    And here comes the perplexing part. Those strict UIL rules that shaft so many innocent kids and families who have to move for nonathletic reasons never seem to get applied to talented kids who move to a successful program in the same area.

    Yes, I know how it's done--so long as the sending coach signs off on the PFP form, no one bats an eye, no matter how egregious the circumstances.

    Still, I don't like the rule. I don't think we can read people's hearts or minds, and I think the rule needs to be abolished, because it's only because a farce and the tool of vindictive coaches. I've see coaches provide totally false testimony before the state exec committee to fabricate a conflict that never existed--but UIL will almost (99% of the time) believe anything the coach says and nothing the parents say.

    I'll go one step further. While I respect what the UIL does in these situations, it's really none of their business. If I, as an adult & parent, decide to move somewhere, for whatever reason, it's really none of their business. We have to have some form of checks & balances to prevent the pandora's box that is recruiting from being open, I support that however if decide to make the sacrifice to get my child wherever he/she has the best opportunites, the UIL and their committee should not be able to interfere in any way. The only exception being the existence of tangible evidence that we have been recruited to come to that school. This is a sports forum, so that's where we look to but there are just as many kids out there who may move for academics, music or the fine arts programs. Those, of course, do not get looked into. No one ever spent money for legal representation to protest a move in who happens to be a talented actor and will take the one act play program to state but a starting quartback move in will get feathers ruffled in a hurry. It's hypocrosy at it's worst.

    The good thing is that it is easy to get around the system. Blake Cantu and Mom can attest to that.

    Give the UIL a decent excuse, and most of the time you can attend the school of your choice. I have several personal examples that prove this point.

    Families do it all the time not just to SLC. It just so happens that when an athlete moves to SLC, it gets everyones attention.

    Nobody is handed a starting postion at SLC just by moving in!! They have to go out and win it by their play, so let's not shed too many tears for the "thought-he-was-gonna-start" kid........If he's a competitor with some heart he will work hard to improve and win back the job, and if he just sulks and whines about his bad luck then "on the pine" is the best place for him.

    No offense ridgepride, but what did Mom Cantu and son Blake "get around?"
    She bought a home in Southlake and moved..Thats about as basic as it gets. He didn't move to "stay with a an uncle so he could play football..the family moved..thats about as permanent as it gets.

    I'll agree with that - I'd bet they'll even be a little harder on the kid.

    Folks have been moving their kids to SLC since at least 1980. I remember listening to Paul Hackett, former off. coord. of the Cowboys, say in 1985 " we could have moved anywhere when we came to Dallas, but we chose SLC because of the program, school and community". Enough said.

    It is hard for the UIL to tell if a family moves for athletic reasons, so I can't make a blanket statement that Cantu did this.

    When I was growing up my family moved because we did not like the situation athletically for myself. The move made me an instant starter on my new team plus the team was better.

    My dad presented the case that we had to move so that we could be closer to his work. We had no problems from the UIL.

    This was a personal experience but It happens all the time every year.
