I know of 3 for sure that were great football players as seniors and were granted an extra year. I have only seen 2 of there names wrestling which both were great wrestlers last year. There is a difference of giving a student a 5th year to finish school but when it comes to sports it is ridiculous sometimes that they will let them do sports again. Some were already held back a year as well so they will "graduate" at 20 years old. It almost seems like it was all done on purpose. There is a difference if it was a kid maybe wanting to play a sport that might be just okay VS lets say for example Gee Scott from Eastside Catholic played another year of high school. If a kid had an outstanding senior year they should not be granted an extra year. We have this same problem in our league as well not just Metro. We have several kids granted a extra year of football when they should not have. In reality there are no rules the WIAA need to just let kids transfer where they want and give every one 5th years then to make it fair to everyone because right now kind of a crappy deal for other kids that have worked hard to be where they are at and in the end it doesn't matter that the kid waited for their shot there senior year because there are super seniors that didn't give him his chance. Very sad and unfair to those real seniors.
