Dear Students and Parents:

 At the Arizona Interscholastic Association’s Executive Board meeting held on February 17th, the Board unanimously voted to charge Deer Valley High School with recruiting violations. In the Wednesday, March 05, 2014 edition of the Arizona Republic, Richard Obert’s article read “AIA: Deer Valley recruited football players.”

 As the principal of Deer Valley High School, I am the person charged under the AIA rules with investigating allegations of illegal recruitment.   I am the person who is supposed to make the decision about eligibility of a student athlete. I take my responsibility seriously. I categorically deny the allegations put forth by the AIA’s one sided “investigation”. Back in August when the hearsay statements were made by the Centennial football coach, Mr. Allen and I conducted a thorough investigation and found no evidence of recruitment of any athletes. As Coach Bolus stated in the newspaper article, the AIA has never interviewed anyone from Deer Valley regarding these unfounded allegations. The AIA never interviewed the Deer Valley students alleged to have been recruited. The AIA never interviewed the parents of the Deer Valley students alleged to have been recruited. The AIA never interviewed the coaches who were alleged to have engaged in recruiting. The AIA’s investigation relied on third party hearsay and innuendo. Our school’s opportunity to share the facts of our investigation will be afforded to us sometime in April, once the AIA Board determines a date and time for our presentation. 

We are terribly sorry for the stress and uncertainty this unnecessary situation has placed on our athletes, our parents, and the entire school. Deer Valley has always been ethical in our practices and honored our commitments to the AIA.   However, when false allegations are made about our school, our athletes, and our students we will not sit idly by but will defend our honor to the fullest.
