The rise of national high school programs

Slate's Robert Andrew Powell wrote a story before the national matchup between Southlake Carroll and Miami-Northwestern on ESPNU two weeks ago.

It's an indictment against the rise of national high school programs like Southlake, Northwestern and Hoover (Ala.). And yes, Powell mentions Evangel in the story.

Alumni and parents can talk about the purity of high school athletics, but the major money (and scandals) that flows in the NCAA is now starting to trickle down to high school athletics and become more pervasive.
