For all the people who thinks Indy puts kids into Major Division IA Schools....now what do you think? Yea..I know in the past there were several to go Major D1, but those athletes were good enough to go to any high school in Charlotte and get signed!! Stay at your assigned school..period!!

Indy is good.

VCCS is the most undercovered school in the county.Regardless of what people think we have put out more players in the last 4 years than any school in the county. The observer ignores the school and there is a lot of talk but we are still solid. Call it what you want.

VCC....please don't write comments on here until you stop giving athletes 5 years to get a 4 year high school diploma. Reclassing kids just for athletics is wrong. VCC is wrong for doing it. You want coverage from the observer....play by the rules like other schools in the area.

Has Victory Christian ever beat anybody in Charlotte? They are overcovered for what they are. They clearly have the worst coaches in America and some of the worst disciplined players. A long time Charlotte coach who has seen it all said if somebody like Tom Knotts was to coach at Victory Christian they might never lose ever again. To be honest, I'm not sure they've put out many more D1 recruits, who at least panned out than Latin has.

All of those students at Charlotte Victory Christian are all four years students and one graduated early – Curtis Porter (already enrolled at U Miami). So you need to know what you talking about before you type.
