County to discuss transfer issue at school board workshop

As the Tampa Tribune/TBO first reported in May, Hillsborough County officials will discuss the issue of student-athletes transferring between schools seemingly at will in a Tuesday workshop at the school board’s headquarters in downtown Tampa.
Although early in the process, county athletic director Lanness Robinson said several options are being discussed. One possible measure to control the flow of student athletes transferring between schools: force them to sit out of action one full year unless receiving approval from a review committee. The committee would be made up of a select number of high school principals, administrators and advisers—but no coaches.
Robinson said the recent investigation into Armwood’s football program by the Florida High School Athletics Association, which claims the parents of five Hawks players falsified documents to gain entry to the school, is not the reason he and the district are trying to take action now. But Robinson does hope the high-profile case does become the catalyst to finally get something done about the transfer issue.
