But OK, so a bunch of kids who live around Sultan decide they want to play for ATM so they sign up their freshman year, and most likely playing JV that year, or they transfer and just play JV for a year anyway to become eligible. What makes you think they would have become good players had they stayed at Sultan HS? I've seen ATM football teams, heck the one my Hounds played in the championship game might have been their best team ever, anyway, those kids weren't born DI athletes blessed with can't miss physical talent. They were fairly athletic kids who looked like they spent a lot of time lifting, running, practicing, attending camps, working on skills, well coached and just flat hard work to make their own talent with what they did have small DI and DII types. Heck, Pullman had six DI scholarship players and they nearly beat us. What makes you think Sultan would have facilitated that, pushed and helped them to become the players they became? Surely you aren't saying that every kid with any athletic talent abandons Sultan for greener pastures and Sultan is left with only a bunch small, slow, weak talentless crappy kids? And if so what does that say about Sultan and the quality of Sultan‘s sports programs?
