I would like to put a shootout to my nephew James Staten III of Loch Raven High School, great last game. I know it was a tough season which you only played 4 complete games due to high ankle injury but you got your man. And congrats I heard you will be attend Mount Union University in Ohio I will be watching.

I wish the young man success but it appears he is now in the class of 2014. He most likely may not have been able to transfer his credits from public to private. Often times kids have difficulting going from Dunbar to an academic institution like SFA. I am sure the MIAA is aware and SFA has been open about it. Enough and let's move on.
Just sayin' for the record.
And it's not enough just yet and we shouldn't move on. I got a PM that indictates we should ask about Mark Velasquez-MMA 2012, Dominic Bell-Pikesville 2012, and Tim Brady-FCA. What's the deal here?
Inquiring minds want to now know.

No principal has any control over admitting kids in a magnet school. It is a complete lottery system. 1000 kids apply and it is a crap shoot with who qualifies. The principal has NO control on who gets in. I really wish people would stop thinking that.
They may be setting themselves up for a culture shock. The regulations of conference A is different and so is the talent level. I do believe they will be fighting for the middle of the pack in the A conference for the next couple of years at SFA. Still great to see another true inner city private doing great things for the student-athletes. Ex. Mt. St Joe
According to MIAA rules this particular player would not be permitted to play his senior year. Reason (5th year)
Read Below Oct 11, 2009
Oct 2009 - Freshmen
Oct 2010- Sophomore
Oct 2012 - Senior......as seen on Rivals he is listed as a Junior.
Oct 2013 - Can't play
I welcome SFA into the MIAA A. But let's not kid ourselves. The MIAA C has the same rules as the A.
Next year SFA will be in violation if this player were to play a game . If SFA has 5th year players this year they will also be in violation.
3. Limits of Participation
A student may not represent any school, regardless of its affiliation to this Association, in any one sport at any competitive level for more than four years. Additionally, students may only be enrolled in grades 9-12 for participation in association athletic programs.
A student may not represent more than one school during any academic year in interscholastic athletics regardless of its affiliation to this association. A student athlete may appeal this guideline based on a move of his primary residence of at least 30 miles.
A student who has graduated from a secondary education program, either domestic or foreign, is not eligible to participate.
However, the only exception to this rule is if the player did not play for some reason. Possible Injury, cut from team. For example, Mr. Tim Brady was injured last year, so my take he is eligible. Trust me SFA, would not jeopardize the state of the game with playing players who were not cleared.
8/30/2008- Freshmen at Archbishop Carrol
8/30/2009 - Sophmore at Archbishop Carrol
8/30/2010 - Junior at FCA
8/30/2011 - Senior at FCA***confirmed he did play***
8/30/2012 - Senior at SFA***Violation 5 years playing***
This could be a violation. 5th year players are not permitted. I hope this does not forfeit the season. We will know more in the morning as I am told the MIAA is well aware of these infractions. SFA may be banned from any bowl activity for at least 3 years. Say it ain't so but I must go with the facts as they are presented.

*2009-2010- AC .. Was a Soph according to 8/30/2009 article but Maxpreps roster and hi light tape says freshman
*2010-2011- Listed as Soph on AC maxpreps roster
*2011-2012- Transfers to FCA as Junior (could not return toFCA and play 2012 for whatever reason , rumors asside)
*2012-2013- Transfers to SFA list as Senior
Really the question is did he play in 2008-2009 JV or elsewhere?
* The information on rivals and maxpreps are put in by coaches etc. Rivals, Maxpreps ect do not fact check the class that is imputed or given them at combine etc... they are not scholastic or always accurate.. really the only thing that matters is what the scholastic transcripts say and if he did ir didnot participate 5 years of HS ball.. well and when he turns 19 matters.. cant turn 19 before Aug 31..
