Read the first time February 22, 2006.
TO REQUEST THE SOUTH CAROLINA HIGH SCHOOL LEAGUE TO SCHEDULE THE ANNUAL STATE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS AT A FACILITY ON THE CAMPUS OF OTHER COLLEGES OR UNIVERSITIES WHICH MEET THE SAME SEATING CAPACITY AND OTHER CRITERIA AS THE WILLIAMS-BRICE STADIUM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA IN ORDER TO EXPOSE THE PARTICIPANTS IN THE EVENT TO OTHER COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES IN WHICH THEY MAY BE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING.
Whereas, the State High School Football Championships have always been played at the football stadium on the campus of the University of South Carolina, which is currently Williams-Brice Stadium; and
Whereas, by playing the State High School Championships at this venue gives USC a tremendous advantage to recruiting high school athletes to play college football at the university; and
Whereas, the High School League currently conducts state championships in other sports besides football at other locations around the State; and
Whereas, the League should recognize the inequity to other colleges and universities resulting from conducting the State High School Football Championships at Williams-Brice Stadium on the campus of USC; and
Whereas, the State High School Football Championships are statewide contests for all of the citizens of South Carolina to view.
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request the South Carolina High School League to schedule the annual State High School Football Championships at a facility on the campus of other colleges or universities which meet the same seating capacity and other criteria as the Williams-Brice Stadium at the University of South Carolina in order to expose the participants in the event to other colleges and universities in which they may be interested in attending. The game should rotate each year between Williams-Brice Stadium and other stadiums that meet the same seating capacity and other criteria as Williams-Brice Stadium.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Executive Director Jerome P. Singleton and each member of the Board of Directors of the South Carolina High School League.
