Summary The Dayton Daily News investigates the growing number of foreign athletes at high schools in and around Dayton. The investigation reveals that "a sophisticated and often secret network of sports agents, coaches and middlemen are flooding American high schools and colleges with foreign athletes. The network, frequently using deception to conceal violations of high-school and college athletic regulations, is driven by schools hungry for championships, by foreign athletes desperate to live in America, and by sports agents poised to make millions should a single grateful player become a star."
