ascenzm:Recently in a neighboring community, some parents ran for the school board because they wanted to fire the high school football coach. The coach would not honor one parent's demand. The coach played the parent's son at Safety and not at Quarterback as the parent had requested. That coach had a lot of nerve not following the parent's recommendations <g>. The coach, who is one of the most successful coaches in Western PA High School football, kept his job when cooler heads prevailed in the school board meeting. This sort of behavior is epidemic in Texas. It works both ways. Joe Blow is mayor, or on the school board, or owns the local plant, or is a local celebrity of some kind, wants his child to be the quarterback and puts pressure on the Coach. If the Coach does not give in, Joe Blow goes on a city-wide rampage to discredit or get rid of the coach. If the coach gives in, his team suffers and worse, the kid who deserved the position in the 1st place just saw years of hard work go down the drain because of small-town politics.I've been there! I've seen it! I've experienced it! My 2 oldest got the shaft from it! I moved because of it! I'm the wiser of it and am on guard as my 3rd and last athlete approaches HS.decath
