    So I guess Wynn wasn’t home schooled? It looks like Milford will be getting some W’s this year with these diaper dandies, baby!

    Depending on the school system, home schooled might be able to play for a public school team. (The one closest to where they live. Check the paperwork.)

    One could hypothesize that the Wylies home school only through grade 10. Wynn is a year older than Wendy and is now a senior. Wendy is just starting at Milford as a junior.

    Hamani “Hambone” Gaines is always mentioned in the pre season, WHATEVER season, as a standout. Yet, he’s never written in as more than a bit player. Tomorrow, Pre season with Mimi and The Amazin’ Amazons and that tall drink of water, Shelby Porter.

    Dale, I think you are on track with the home schooled idea, but with open enrollment in most districts anymore I think star athletes who are home schooled (which is a rare occurence) can pretty much choose where they want to go for athletics. I believe most students in that situation enroll for at least one course in the district (music, PE, driver’s ed.) to make their attendance somewhat official. At least that’s what we’ve seen in Iowa high school athletics.

    Wasn’t Jaxon’s mom home-schooled or am I just remembering wrong? So much has happened since then, ya know.

    OK, I looked it up…she went to “the Alternative High School” while playing softball, aka, the school for girls with mutant toddlers.

    She was going to an “alternative” school.

    That’s the problem with commenting on GT based on where we went to school or live now.
    GT is fiction, but also unreal by any standard.
    Why are all those 20 year olds still in HS? They should have been drafted by now.

    My niece was home schooled in northwest Illinois. She didn’t take any classes at the high school, but was totally accepted by her teammates. Of course that could be because she was a star pitcher and the team went deep into the playdowns(state tournament) for three years! Plus she is a really nice kid.

    Wasn’t Tim Tebow home schooled but played football for a public high school?

    Home schooled not allowed to participate in Indiana.

    Correct. Texas has the Tebow Law which permits home school students to particiapte in regular school extracurricular activities. He also has a steak bearing his name at a restaurant in Austin.

    They are if they attend at least one class at the school and meet some academic requirements.
