Teams move quickly after NCAA actions

7/6/2012

Shortly after the NCAA’s decision to ban four individuals from having contact with their respective teams on the summer circuit, the principals behind those programs began searching for solutions.

SEBL All-Stars, according to the head of the program, Dwight Miller, replaced Tony Edwards as the coach and moved forward with their summer plans. Miller’s program was told it could participate in July provided if it found a new coach and adhered to the NCAA’s mandate of distancing itself from Edwards.

“Per the NCAA, SEBL has been asked to remove coach Tony Edwards from our roster until the NCAA investigation is completed,” Miller released in an email. “Other than that, there will be no changes to our July schedule.”

The Florida Rams, according to a source, found a solution to their issue. Players for the Rams will now play with Florida Elite and Matt Ramker, the Rams founder, is no longer involved in the operations of the team.

Florida Elite did not have 16- and 17-year-old teams this season and was able to absorb the entire Rams roster. The teams travel schedule has not changed. The squad will play at the adidas Invitational, participate in two games at the Peach State Showcase, Best of the South in Atlanta and finish up in Las Vegas.
