Softball Coach Gets a Raw Deal


92587After guiding his Walkersville High softball team to the 2A Western Region title this spring, Brad Young hosted a post-season cookout and pool party for his team. Several of the parents brought some beer to the party and that led to Young being dismissed from his position for violating his school district’s regulations prohibiting alcohol at any school function.

Although none of the players or Young were drinking or had access to the alcohol and none of the adults were or became intoxicated, Young received a letter from the school board informing him they were relieving him of his position.
Some of the girls parents have, in turn, stepped up on behalf of the team’s coach.

Bob McNally, father of two players on this year’s team, said he brought beer to the team function at Young’s home, unaware it would be a school system policy violation for the coach to permit it at a team party.

“None of the students had access to alcohol or were drinking,” McNally said in a phone interview Monday. “The girls simply had a lot of fun. And Brad (Young) did not drink. In no way shape or form did any parents or school employee put any of the students in jeopardy or do anything illegal or immoral.”

McNally described Young as a “great role model for those kids,” and “a mentor who gives 150 percent” for the students-athletes in his charge.

“It wasn’t an intentional violation,” NcNally said. “The punishment doesn’t fit the crime.”

Seems to me that this coach got totally shafted, the parents admit it wasn’t him, that he wasn’t drinking and that he’s a great role-model. I think the school board had better reinstate him and soon, because he’s getting totally boned.
