PSN’s Doug Biega Reacts to Proposed PIAA Changes

A state representative is proposing major changes to high school athletics in Pennsylvania.

Representative Aaron Bernstine hosted a news conference to introduce House Bill 1600. The highlights of the proposed bill would create separate postseason playoffs for public and private/Catholic schools. The bill would also eliminate the transfer rule, allowing players to transfer high schools for any athletic reason.

The bill must be passed by the House, Senate and signed by Governor Tom Wolf.

Good move by the PIAA if it works as advertised.. Play where you live, if you move then you get to play there…as far as public v private , I think that has become worse since the charter schools have become big players. They can jump around wherever and whenever…but overall hoping for the best and especially gives smaller public schools a chance to compete on a fairer level.. I was not worried about the Pine Richlands, but more the Mapletowns, Riverviews and the Hopewells of the WPIAL.
