Senior High Sports goes live in seven days and next week can’t come soon enough

Next Monday, February 4 the current password page will be removed from seniorhighsports.com and after reading this article, that day can’t come soon enough.

Michelle Stiles, a volunteer coach for McKinley’s (NY) girls basketball team was unjustly terminated. Now Jayvonna Kincannon, the team captain and honor roll student, has been suspended for a total of seven weeks and kicked off of the team (in her senior year) for defending her coach.

There’s obviously a lot more to the story and I strongly urge you to read the aforementioned article from the Buffalo News, which explains the situation in detail.

As stated on our About page, the mission of Senior High Sports is “to provide a platform for the voices of passionate high school sports followers and participants to be heard.”

High school athletes are horribly underrepresented in the media and generally have very little recourse when treated unfairly by a coach, principle, or school board. I want this to end, and hopefully Senior High Sports will be one step in the right direction.

    You do get the occasional story about a drug testing controversy or when the quarterback and the head cheerleader aren’t playing nice but that’s really it for high school sports.
