Cincinnati's Walnut Hills High School is a great place for bright kids to get an academically strong secondary education. For the last three years, it has been a miserable place for big, athletic boys to play football. Walnut hasn't won in over three years.
Today's Enquirer covers the situation with a degree of thoroughness, fairness and sympathy seldom seen in journalism these days. We commend the writer, Tom Groschen, for the superb coverage.
We also commend the new WHHS principal, Jeff Brokamp, for the steps he has taken to raise the profile of the football program, in hopes of attracting more athletes to the team, thereby creating a measure of success that will encourage still more participation and allow everyone to have a better experience.
We expect to attend the WHHS homecoming game tonight. Care to join us?
