UPDATE 8/23/12 1:15 p.m.
According to an Upper Darby official, Upper Darby won the appeal with the PIAA, meaning Sonkarly Winpea will be allowed to transfer to Bonner-Prendergast but he’ll be unable to play football.
The Daily Times regrets the error made in the the original post which stated Winpea would suit up for Bonner this fall. Upper Darby contested that Winpea was transferring primarily for athletic reasons.
More details to come.
Winpea would transfer from Upper Darby, where he racked up 666 yards on 150 carries (4.4 ypc) a season ago.
Because the transfer had yet to be approbated as of Tuesday afternoon, Bonner coach Greg Bernhardt wouldn’t go into too much detail on-record regarding Winpea’s impending arrival.
“We hope to get get him in here and playing for us soon,” Bernhardt said.
Bernhardt added that while Winpea would have to learn Bonner’s system in a relatively short period of time, the expectation is that Winpea would be the Friars’ primary running back.
Bernhardt said that Winpea approached him in April about making the move to Bonner.
