Our communities should be outraged at the conduct demonstrated by the Notre Dame Coach (Brian Kelly) and the Compliance Office. The nerve of him commenting disappointment in this young man (Everett Golson) as though he had no knowledge of his GPA as he had him running the football to the Discover BCS National Championship last January.
All coaches utmost concern should be academics and not merely seeking championships through the young men and women whose lives are entrusted to their guidance and wisdom. All coaches should be put under scrutiny and guidelines set and adhered to or administrative actions should be taken.
Parents also must continue to be proactive. Low GPAs mean you should sideline your child, you have that authority. Our children are our greatest asset. We need to prepare them for society by becoming: spiritually based; educationally sound; and financially stable. I pray for the lives of all young people from Little Leagues to professional leagues. May God help us.
