The POO Award I give out every Saturday morning on my blog during football season is my way of pointing out a huge pet peeve of mine:the unnecessary running up the score by some high school football teams. I’ve written about this sore subject many times and my criticism is aimed more at the jug head coaches who have control as opposed to the players who simply follow orders.
Amateur athletics should never be tainted by a complete lack of sportsmanship. It’s rare honest to goodness sportsmanship is displayed on the high school gridiron, and I’ve seen 45 years worth of high school ball.
When players not only play but act like champions, it’s special. I only wish there was more of it, inspirational stuff like this.
