Behavior at area football games offensive

Dear Editor:

I am a spectator at most of the games for a certain county school.

It really hurts when the fans yell out to the boys and coaches.

The boys are called stupid boys and kindergarten kids, and the coaches get yelled at all the time

If these folks think they are a better coach I suggest they go to school and give about 10 hours aday or more to the development of their kids.

Kids will make mistakes as do all of us.

It really bothers me when I know that the coach they are yelling at gives up a lot of time for his players, he is also a single parent and makes a lot of sacrifices

for his players and school.

When things are going good, they are the best ever and the coaches are the greatest. What is wrong with us that we can not be grown up and appreciate the good times as well as the bad.

After all this is a sport, and if the boys are lucky they will learn a few of life's lessons along the way.

A concerned parent and patron of high school games.
