Scots' Yazzie earns NCSA athleadership honor

Summer Yazzie from Ben Lomond High School has won a National Athleadership grant sponsored by NCSA Athletic Recruiting and the NFLPA.  Receiving this award is an honor is only given to a select number of student athletes throughout the country in all sports from football to track. 

The Athleadership grant is awarded to student athletes who qualify based on leadership in their community, academic achievement, athletics and a required essay written by the student athlete. 

NCSA Athletic Recruiting will work with Yazzie and her family throughout her high school career and assist her in finding a collegiate institution that best matches her academic and athletic achievements.

Basketball coaches allowed on court

 Head coaches in high school basketball will be allowed to come onto the court in an effort to break up a fight or keep a situation from escalating. Previously, the head coach could only enter the court if beckoned by an official. 

This revision to Rule 10-4-5 was one of five rules changes approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations basketball rules committee. All rules changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

While the head coach and his/her assistants must continue to ensure that players remain on the bench during a fight, the committee agreed that the presence of the head coach on the court could be instrumental in preventing the situation from escalating, and the coach also could assist game officials in controlling the situation.
