Department of Education investigation calls Bishop Sycamore a scam

A Bishop Sycamore punter is upended against Archbishop Hoban on Aug. 19.  Since 2020, Bishop Sycamore is winless and has been outscored 342-49.

After weeks of investigating, the Ohio Department of Education released a scathing report Friday, accusing Bishop Sycamore, the Columbus high school that made national news for flopping during a football game, of being nothing more than "a scam."

A damning 79-page report claimed investigators could not find proof Bishop Sycamore met any of the requirements for private, non-chartered schools like holding regular classes, verifying teacher credentials or maintaining academic records. 

"Unfortunately, the facts suggest that Bishop Sycamore High School was and is, in fact, a scam ...," State Superintendent Stephanie Siddens wrote in a memo attached to the report.  "Bishop Sycamore was a way for students to play football against high school teams and potentially increase students’ prospects of playing football at the collegiate level."
