Go Behind the Scenes at Ann Arbor area Football Media Day 2

MLive hosted its second Ann Arbor football media day on Wednesday, and things got weird.

But in a good way.

Players and coaches from Ypsilanti, Lincoln and Whitmore Lake visited MLive’s Ann Arbor office, and we asked them some off-the-wall questions such as, “Would you rather have spaghetti for hair or sweat maple syrup?”

Sport-Specific MHSAA Transfer Rule

Sport-Specific MHSAA Transfer Rule, enacted in 2018-19, takes effect this school year

EAST LANSING – The Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) made changes to the high school sports transfer rule last year and those changes, now sport-specific, take effect in the fall. A summary of the rules is below, with a link to the full rules, which are too lengthy for publication.

Sport-Specific Transfer Regulation:

Unless a high school student meets one of the 15 stated exceptions – most exceptions involve a defined residential change – a student will not be eligible for the next season in a sport he or she participated in at his or her former high school (any level) during the most recent previous school year. A student would be eligible in sports he or she did not participate in during the previous or current school year. Ineligibility is for the next school year in the sport played previously. A student who transfers during a season will not be eligible that season in a sport played that season, and ineligible in that sport the next season.

“Participation” means to have actually entered and competed in an interscholastic scrimmage or contest. To “participate” means to actually enter and play (or run, or swim, etc.) in an interscholastic scrimmage or contest.
