Is it OK for a coach to slap a player's helmet?
A coach slapping a player’s helmet has sparked an investigation in Broward County, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports here.
During ESPN’s broadcast of the Cypress Bay-American Heritage game, a camera caught Cypress Bay coach Mark Guandolo slapping a player’s helmet on the sidelines. You can see the video below:
School officials met with the player, his family and Guandolo on Monday morning, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Let’s use this incident as a place to start discussion. Is this much ado about nothing? Was the coach out of line? Where’s the line between getting a player’s attention and abuse?
