Yes (Sam Levy)

Our sports are on the uptick. We just completed a new gymnasium, upgraded a lot of our facilities and are rapidly increasing in size. Our teams needs to be able to compete with other teams in our region, and across the state. Many other schools in our region – Woodward Academy and St. Pius, to name a few – use recruiting as a way to be one step ahead of non-recruiting schools. If Decatur wants to continue improving its sports and compete with recruit-filled teams, we need to branch out and look for accomplished athletes.

No (Wilson Witherspoon)

Decatur is not, nor has it ever been, a private school. We’ve not had the ability to hand money and opportunity to the best athletes in the area. Granted, we’ve lost some local athletes this way, but we’ve created a certain culture within our athletic department. A win-with-what-you’ve-got culture. A culture that has been successful. One that we should be proud of, and one that would be ruined if Decatur were to become a recruiting-heavy school.
