HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL COACH HUMBLES TEAM:
Sometimes during the heat of any sports game, passion for the game and competitiveness take over. Sometimes a line is crossed between competitiveness and bad sportsmanship. This was the case this past Friday night during a North Texas High School game featuring Melissa High School and China Spring. At one point of the game, Melissa was up 34 - 7.
Something happened shortly before the below video, whatever it was had Melissa's head coach fuming, not by the officiating, but by the acts of poor sportsmanship by his own team. So he took action immediately and made his team do up-downs on the field to show his team that their actions would not be tolerated. You can also hear the commentary in below video followed by the applause of the crowd on both sides of the stand in support of the coach's decision.
What a teaching moment from this coach. He understands that being a football coach is so much more than what happens on the field. All the comments support this coach's actions. What do you think?
