Access for Student Athletes Coalition supports legislation to amend FHSAA

A set of bills sponsored by two state politicians that would amend investigations conducted by the Florida High School Athletic Association has gained a new supporter.
The Access for Student Athletes Coalition, a new initiative launched by Floridians for Government Accountability, Inc., announced its support for the bills on Wednesday, which aim to safeguard student-athletes from investigations.
The Coalition commended the passage of House Bill 1279, which is being sponsored by State Rep. Larry Metz, R-Yalah.
“For years, the FHSAA has turned their opposition to change into successful spin that their main goal is to instill fairness and protect the integrity of high school athletics,” said Jim Hart, chairman of Floridians for Government Accountability, Inc. in a release. “But, the real story here is about an organization that has instilled fear and has bullied the very children we are trying to teach to be strong and be kind to others. Parents with complaints of intimidation, biased questioning, and unwarranted assumptions of guilt continue to see their complaints go unanswered or even ignored.”
The bills would force the FHSAA to bear the burden of investigation expenses, which were typically billed to the offending school. House Bill 1279, sponsored by Metz, would not only implement a law stating the FHSAA must demonstrate convincing evidence of the student’s ineligibility, but would permit a judge to issue the final order. The Senate version, SB 1164, is being sponsored by Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland.
If the judge finds the student eligible, all costs and attorney fees would be absorbed by the FHSAA.

In the top of the third, the Lutz Blue doubled their lead. Nouss scored from third on a wild pitch, and later in the inning, Bean’s two out double plated two runs to make it 6-0, Lutz Blue.
Land O’Lakes cut into the lead in the bottom of the fourth, Russell Holland hit a solo homer to left center, but that would be as close as Bean and Bautista, who pitched the bottom of the sixth, held them at bay.
