Findlay Prep Gone!


Nov 30, 2011
Excerpted from today's Washington Post. The HS players currently "enrolled" are now all "Free Agents." Who's kidding who with diploma mills like this?
"Founded in 2006 by Cliff Findlay, a Las Vegas car dealership heavyweight, Findlay Prep quickly established itself as one of the world’s most successful high school basketball programs, producing a 381-43 (.899) all-time record.

But Findlay Prep was viewed with a critical eye before it got off the ground, said Eddie Bonine, former executive director of the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association. It wasn’t a school as much as a basketball team: 12 teenage boys from across the globe, sharing a house owned by Findlay, a UNLV booster.

The program lacked its own education curriculum as well as its own classrooms, so the team took courses at Henderson International, a nearby private school, when it wasn’t barnstorming the country as part of a 30-game schedule."
Why are they closing? Sounds like this Henderson International had enough of the "arrangement." They are looking for a "new campus" to maybe restart the "school" in future years. Any vacant buildings in South Miami?
