PA Lawmaker Wants Separate Playoffs For Public And Private Schools

A Central Pennsylvania lawmaker plans to introduce a bill that would create separate playoffs for public schools and private schools. Centre County State Representative Scott Conklin is scheduled to discuss the bill tonight in State College. Some public school leaders say the current system is unfair because private schools aren’t confined by geographic boundaries to recruit top players, while public schools must stay within their own area. As a result, some private school programs have emerged as powerhouses that are dominating state playoffs.
