Now that the 2007 prep football season is in the past and the champions have been crowned, I find myself reflecting on those 22 Hillcrest High football players who forfeited their football season by boycotting one practice. Did Jordan District forget the purpose of educating our children is to give them the tools necessary to survive in this world? Why is this coach allowed to teach our kids that they can't make a difference?

No respect has been given to the boys who genuinely wanted what was best for their team. Where is the real education in this situation?
