It sounds like the administration doesn't have their ducks in a row. Shouldn't there be a running log of students enrolled? I feel bad for the kids, they are the victims here. Most of the coaches were previously at Alto, so they already had an idea for how incompetent the administration was. 

That is not a true statement about the coaches. A lot of new coaches down there!   You made a huge assumption

Correct. Two year contracts have been signed for non-district games. Dozens of schools affected.

Not only that, look at it from the perspective of a coach who might be on the playoff bubble in his district. What reason does he have to invite another potential playoff team to the party? He could be setting someone up to bump him out of the postseason. 

probably the right thing to do though

Ok, well most of them were at Alto in 2020 working under this superintendent. The same lady that suspended the coaches for going to Center in 2021. A lot of them went to Center in 2021 and came back to Alto in 2022. These facts check out.

This whole thing disappoints me..who in the cornbread hell is running the shop down there? Somebody was supposed to know these things,it's literally somebody's job to count kids every day..guess we'll blame this on putin too ✌️this debacle has probably cost a few student athletes that have put in the work,both in the classroom and on the field/courts a chance to further their career /education....wow,if I'm one of the parents of these kids...I'd be burnt smooth up,we'd be having discussion of who is turning in the resignation first for deriliction of dutys..👏👏👏jeez,my alto brothers gotta be hurting rite now,sorry for the seniors...

Will be interesting to see if any of the district teams decide not to play them…….might happen if a few starters are banged up and need a week off for the rest of district or the playoffs.

I give kudos to supt and how she handled it today.  She is having to deal with huge mess, stood up and was very professional.  This is a very small school district.  Wish them the best

Look.....I think heads should roll from the top down.    But the current coaches didn't have anything to do with this. 

 

Horrible for the kids and coaches.

Coaches are hired to win football games, and the measure of success is making the playoffs. No coach is going to make that more difficult than it already is.

The real shame here is that students will take the brunt of this punishment.....when the mistake (intentional or not) was committed by adults.

Coaches and fans missing the playoffs....in the grand scheme of things..... is NO BIG DEAL.

Players that did absolutely nothing wrong missing the playoffs is abhorrent.

There’s nothing wrong with the process. Every other school handled their business. POINT BLANK WE DID NOT. And it’s the kids that ultimately suffer. It’s embarrassing. 

I hate this for y’all’s kids. Especially your seniors.

At the end of the day it all falls on the Superintendent. That is the person responsible for the district. After listening to the UIL meeting with Alto it sounded to me like everyone in Alto knew they had administrative problems. And nobody tried to fix them until it was too late. Very sad the students suffer because the administration couldn't get along.

Bad for the seniors……..But worse for the juniors IMO………..Seniors had 3 years to make the playoffs…..Juniors only had 2 years to make the playoffs………Bad for both

I'm just curious as to who cryed foul? Whom was so intimidated by the jackets that they would report this to uil? Was it an inside job from butthurt or external forces who were in fear of playing real football against quality? I personally would never believe that a storied and proud team such as alto would even consider such nefarious acts.hell the alto I know would play Lobo in Longview and maybe outnumber them with fans,if they were on the schedule,I know with heartfelt pride that the jacket band would put em on notice...lol...that band gets a stadium rocking,Personally I am looking forward to Carlisle,alto and tenaha being in same dist, last time we played tenaha they pulled the roof in on our heads,and alto always comes in swinging 👀

It ain’t about crying foul brother. If business was handled like it should have been there is no foul to worry about no matter who is bitter or butt hurt. I’m hurt for these kids, because they work their tails off!!!

Place needs a purge starting in administration building.  Bring in an outsider(s) that want listen to or put up with the small town politics BS.  The school has been in the news several times from the start of the new year and none of it has been good.  Some people need to be Vince McMahon'd.

Im in Gunter  Never played Alto and never been to Alto.  But always heard of Alto.   Football is why. Why it happened i dont know.  But the people there are proud of their school and their kids and will do what they have to do.  Make changes and move on.
