‘They’re just kids.’
That’s the rallying cry of any youth sports game that gets out of end.
Too often we hear about belligerent parents who get heavy-handed in sporting events, or even start getting into fist fights in the stands with each other.
But what about a coach who runs up the score in youth football?
Kyle Williams is a coach for an under 7 team in Philadelphia.
His team went up by 30 points, in a league where that’s not considered ‘fair’ and teams get penalised for it.
So coach Williams did what any good coach would do, he benched his starters-and put in his 5 year olds. Yep, those pissy pants 5 year olds.
Sadly one of those 5 year olds can ball, and was able to run the ball back for a TD.
That put the team up 36-0, and coach Williams in the dog house with the league.
He now faces a $500 fine for running up the score.
He’s going to need to sell their Christmas presents to pay off that debt.
