Special HSQB Rank Request

Post by AKKOLADE » Thu Dec 12, 2013 12:44 pm

If you're close to a top 100 team (beyond the obvious one in CA) in the rankings and your team's contact is someone who is NOT an official contact with your school, please let me know. I'm going to try mailing out letters with the midseason rankings.

What does this mean? Paper letters? And what does close mean?

I believe that he will be mailing out letters to schools in the top 100, so he needs official contacts to make sure that they're going to that school. "Close" would be someone who is connected to that school's QB program, I suppose.

What is an official contact? Should it be a student, a teacher, or an administrator?

I've changed my mind and will be contacting principals directly. If this is an issue, lemme know. I don't need or even necessarily want details.

Just go off the next rankings update to see if it applies to you.

I'm going to extend this to the top 150 teams, so if this would cause an issue for you, please let me know ASAP. Letters will probably go out Tuesday.
