New update on Shepherd Hill football player Kevin Mensah. After shaming Holy Name Athletic Director Jim Manzello, he finally agreed to sign the MIAA’s “Form 200” which is a waiver that schools sign when a student athlete transfers schools so they can continue to play sports at the new schools. Both schools have signed the waiver. Both schools are now officially cool with it and the kid can play.

LOL. Just kidding. The MIAA still isn’t allowing it because they are worse than ISIS.

Swear to God. They have to have a meeting and a hearing and all this other crap, when all it would take is a simple phone call to Holy Name and Shepherd Hill, and a fax of form 200. Because this is what the dooshnozzles at the MIAA get paid $230,000 a year to do – create bureaucracy and red tape in order to screw over kids. We’ve called their offices in Franklin several times this week for a comment, but shockingly have not heard back from them. Why would they? They’re accountable to no one. They can do whatever they want, so long as Athletic Directors don’t have the stones or the minerals to just up and leave them. They don’t need the MIAA. They can form their own governing body, create their own rules, and not hand over all their cash to these crooks so they can bone their students.

Shepherd Hill gave St. John’s a game this weekend, leading after three quarters before being unleashed upon by the Pioneers in the fourth quarter. This week they play at Wachusett, and as usual Wachusett is really good at football. Kid deserves to play. I’m sure both teams would rather go against a full squad of eligible players. Kevin Mensah is eligible, both schools have agreed that he is. So what would happen if they just let him play? What’s the MIAA gonna do? If I’m the coaches of these teams than I simply don’t play the game unless all eligible players on both teams are allowed to suit up. Time to send the MIAA a message that they work for the schools and the kids, and not vice versa.

    And yet….. Still waiting for someone to explain the rules and what will be the actual decision points for the MIAA in their hearing. The HN waiver was clearly a red herring. Wasn’t the hearing already scheduled before it was signed? Not looking to insult anyone. Not looking to pretend I’m smarter than anyone. Just can see the obvious, gaping holes in this story.

    I have to admit I don’t know much about the MIAA rules, but it is a shame that this could hold back a kid for a potential scholarship.

    Just cause Holy Name signed the form doesn’t mean the kid wasn’t illegally recruited to play in central mass. Why does the “big game” against Wachusett matter? I thought it was all about Kevin, and not about wins and losses. Thats all I have heard is its all about Kevin, and not about wins, but now we are clamoring that he must play now, cause they got another big game.

    Talk to anyone who knows the facts. This transfer is shady. It was done as a late marriage to try to create a super team and get Kevin to the Division 1 level. There are rules about this and at this point, the social media campaign to try to get it through is almost embarrassing. For the kids sake, I hope he gets to play, but every person in cmass football knows exactly how this went down.

    TB, did you reach out to your former friends at Shepherd Hill for this story?

      Another hypocrite throwing a tantrum when an “ungrateful n-word” turns the tables on one of the worst Central MA high school recruiting offenders. This issue was never about the kid, just a bunch of overpaid wannabe Pop Warner coaches trying to live their “never had” glory days and punishing one of their slaves from having the gall to run away from the plantation.

      I’ve dealt with your type in three different sports and youth leagues for over fifteen years. I volunteer to coach because I love teaching kids – and to protect them from your type that will try to bully everyone so they can live vicariously through their own kids and get off on an imaginary power trip.

      Or your just another closeted SJW liberal whining about fabricated injustices that they have no actual knowledge of. Both types are despicable.

      Guess you’ll just have to find another way to keep those alumni contributions coming, huh?.

    Publius is your argument is analogous to someone staying with the same stylist even though a much better stylist begins working at the salon because you have gone to them for years? Sorry quality matters and not everyone gets a trophy.

      Just saying I worked hard all summer and some guy who wasn’t there all summer got recruited a few weeks before season started I might be a little peeved. Or is not about the kids ? is the the NFL ?

    TB realizes the MIAA are the coaches and ADs? If I am the starting running back from SH who almost lost my job because of a new recruit from a few weeks ago when I been working hard for years I would be thinking leave everything as it is.

      Your (& other’s) blind allegiance to your old school is clouding your judgement on this issue. Stop trying to protect your ego before you damage your credibility beyond repair.

    Sounds like there is so much more to this story. TB been lashing out at the wrong parties. And still we are missing the facts. What exactly happened. There are many many ADs out there who do not think Mensah should play this year at all. Is SH coach going to be suspended ?
