Good for these kids giving themselves the best chance to athletically excel, and taking advantage of opportunities to attend exclusive private schools that might not otherwise be available to them.

They don’t owe you anything. Also you need an editor.

Attending public high schools and private parochial high schools are entirely different scenarios.

Geographic residency generally applies to public high school participatory athletics.

In private parochial high schools, student-athletes often reside in locales outside of the school location. There are no district boundaries.

This is why so many Catholic high schools like Serra, Bellermine, St. Francis, Archbishop Mitty, De LaSalle, and Mater Dei are football powerhouses. They can recruit high-end players and more power to them.

Why should a gifted athlete be forced to play in a substandard public high school football program if there are other more promising options available?
