Default Lulz....CA High School conducts NFL style prom draft






A Newport Beach high school where male students say they select prom dates in an NFL-style draft – ranking female students and selling first-round picks to those eager for a top selection – is being discouraged by administrators.

News of the “prom draft” prompted Kathy Scott, principal at Corona del Mar High School, to send an email to parents over the weekend saying that “it is not OK for any student to be objectified or judged in any way.”

In her email, Scott said she’d heard about an ongoing “prom draft” and that it appears there was a similar draft last year.

According to one student, junior and senior boys draw random numbers for the draft but can purchase more desirable draft picks.

This year, one junior paid $140 to get a high first-rank pick so he could select a specific girl, said the student, who is not being identified because of potential school disciplinary action.

“It’s awkward because he spent a large amount of money to go with someone he doesn’t talk to,” the student said. “And she finds it awkward that he chose her.”

The reaction among students on campus has been mixed, he said.

“A lot of the girls respect the draft and stick with those dates,” he said.

But the prom draft has also drawn complaints from female students, he said. Last year some junior girls were upset that junior boys were asking sophomore girls instead of them, he said.

Sometimes the Sophomores are hotter and more grateful to be asked.

Maybe some of the guys with higher picks will trade down? A 6 pack for their first and a second? I feel there could be better value in the middle tier picks, considering their potential willingness to give HJ's or BJ's afterwards. Those top picks can be a total let down kiddos.

I'd trade down to accumulate more picks.

Or maybe trade a Junior year 2nd rounder for a Senior year 1st.

I meant trade my 2st rounder in MY Junior year (let's say 2014) for a 1st rounder next year (2015/Senior year). But now I'm buzzed and a little confused. Need McShay's opinion on this one.

My guess would be he fell in love with her workout, drafted her too early and then dumped her in favor of a higher pick after investing a lot of money in her.

He was terrible with the ladies......I mean god awful. I imagine whoever he picked either held out or he settled for an undrafted free agent like his sister/cousin. Sad.

So if this was Kaylore, would he have had multiple picks since he is a Mormon?

It's funny when we take the actions of high school kids and put it down on paper.

Do they have to have a physical? I assume there is no long term contract involved here...

Guessing so. But they would probably have to be provisional picks out of the homeschool pool.

Booo! Thread killer!

However I have no idea why the girls would put up with this s**t. If they boycott the prom the guys are screwed (figuratively only). It's like porn, the chicks have all the power, these girls just haven't figured that out yet.

If the ugly girls don't get picked, maybe it will be incentive to better themselves and get their stuff in gear. I mean, this is the kind of event that can spring a 4/10 to maybe hit 6.5 sometime down the road. Sometimes people just need to get motivated. Some of them might act like Geno Smith, but whatever. That is to be expected.

I had the same girl ask me to go to prom all four years of high school. It was insulting to me because I consider myself probably a Top 50 selection at my school, but this girl was ultimately a late round pick or UDFA at best. Year after year I told her no. She was crushed.
