He is a wealthy, benevolent person who wants a good football team for Gilman. I don't see anything wrong with that.
If you think all the kids that he had on his team last year were need based then we will agree to disagree.
Actually I remember when Danny Manning transfered to Lawrence High (Kansas) from California.. His Das was named the new basketball HC at Lawrence... When Manning went to KU there was some hubub and the NCAA looked into it.. Nothing they could do... All legal... point is NCAA could care less what high school a kid goes to , who pays the tuition etc..

The Association endorses only need-based financial aid and recommends that assistance to students be granted only on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Any member school that awards financial assistance not based upon determined need to students who participate in Association contest is required annually to submit a disclosure statement of such assistance, detailing both the recipients and the amount of aid granted, to the Executive Director for inclusion in the Annual Report of the Association.
Well this is the MIAA rule on this, so if people are giving money outside the need based financial aid their would be a record.
No it does not say that it says the MIAA only endorses need based aid. Each school sends out the application to an outside company that reviews them and grants aid based on it. Which then everything is reported for tax purposes for the the school. Anything outside of that aid is considered non need based so it has to be reported. So if someone is out their paying for kids outside of this and it's not reported it is a violation. And I know this for a fact.
This is all splitting hairs anyway it is not difficult to get approved for aide though FACTS or any of the other companies for schools with 24k a year tuition.. Unless you make 250k plus and have no bills...
A violation of the rules. No MIAA school is allowed to give athletic scholarships or aid outside the guidelines without it being reported. I’m a little bit more up to speed on the subject after last year.
Good learning discussion guys!!!!

4. Amateur Status
To be eligible to participate in contests of this Association, a student must be an amateur. As such, he/she may not receive, directly or indirectly, any salary, stipend, incentive, payment, award, gratuity, gift, educational expenses or expense allowance as a result of participation in any sport or sports team. In order to preserve students’ eligibility for college athletics, MIAA athletes are required to adhere to the policies for avoiding “professionalism” as defined by the NCAA.
It is fairly common practice at all MIAA schools for wealthy alums to either dump money into the general scholarship pool and/or fund scholarships or no-interest loans to potential students. In the second case, the alums have sole control over who they offer the money to because it is their own private money. They are not allowed to approach potential students, but potential students come to them. Before I knew if i was going to get enough institutional money to go to McDonogh I inquired about getting money from a wealthy alum on the Board of Trustees. I ended up getting enough money from the school to cover it, but that option was always there and it was common knowledge that it was there.
Here is an example what could challenge the Amateur status.. Lets say a kid is at a private school and I am a booster for the school. Lets say the kid is a great athlete but chooses not to play football.. If I went to his parents and said I will pay for your kids tuition if he plays football next year then yes that could be pay for play... but even then its dicey because "tuition" to a school is not considered pay for play.. Tuition is to attend the school not to play football.. unless of course playing football is a requirement of the aide.. NCAA Athletic Scholarships do require them to play to receive it.. why are scholarship athletes in college still amateurs? because they don't consider tuition as income...
