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.
If passed these changes would completely change high school sports in Pennsylvania. With reaction to the proposed bill, here’s PSN’s High School Insider Doug Biega.
