OHSAA says "no" to Spring Football

This really ticks me off. I feel the OHSAA is about as corrupt as the NCAA. WE need spring football in Ohio. The southern schools have had this advantage for years now. SEC dominance anyone? What's the harm of a 2 week non-contact instructional practice session? I say follow suit with this issue and separate public and private school playoffs. The OHSAA uses the best interests of students as a disguise to serve their own best interests. If a kid is blessed with the physical and athletic skills to play collegiate or pro football, then why not offer them help to reach their goals? Any student chasing an academic scholarship is afforded all the opportunities he or she needs to achieve that. Don't give me the "concerned about the student/athlete's future" argument. We are talking about a small percentage of students with special abilities. Go pro as early as you can. Get the money. You have your whole life to pursue an education.
