In the wake of a controversial high school football game, signs of school spirit and coach support are cropping up in the city of Aledo.
A North Texas high school football coach whose undefeated team won its last game 91-0 said Wednesday a district investigation found “no grounds” to support a bullying complaint filed by a parent of the losing team.
There was little chance of defeat, when Aledo’s undefeated Bearcats faced Fort Worth’s Western Hills on the football field Friday. The final score, 91 to 0, though, led one parent to file an official complaint of bullying against the entire coaching staff.
A North Texas football coach shot in 2005 by an athlete’s father has been stripped of his duties as athletic director after being sanctioned by the governing agency for high school sports.
Parents of football players at Rockwall Heath High School say their children were bullied, not by other students, but by their own coaches.
