Multiple fires ignite across Moffat County July 27, 2016
Lonelyone. I have a hard time agreeing with you on the point that athletic scholarships are the reason why many kids get to go to college. Most high school athletes do not get scholarships and when they do get into college they need to be prepared. Most Moffat County kids that go to college do so without getting an athletic scholarship. I know that there is a focus on academics from within the school. But not from the community. As a community we need to support the academic side of our schools and change our priorities for what we want our kids to accomplish in life. I know that when I was attending school at Moffat County the community at large could care less about academic programs compared to the athletic programs.
The students have been sitting there all season and so what if they were not watching the game it is THEIR HOMECOMING not ours. They were having fun and if they wanted to stand in the same place they have at every home game this year so what. Students are children and although their actions were inappropriate the adults in the crowd should have been the voices of reason and de-escalated the situation or got the adminstrators involved instead of spraying soda pop on the students. I am not saying that the kids should have acted rudely but the whole situation should have turned out differently if there were responsible adults in the crowd rather than adult sized hooligans. Thank you Mr. Mann for calling for the accountability for adults that attend the high school football games.
Do not worry Braeden I am sure that this issue will be swept under the rug as are most indisrections concerning athletes at MCHS. While you did show some self respect for apologizing it was completely innapropriate for you to do so in the first place and you should be reprimanded for this by the adminstration at the High School.
The MAIN problem with the moffat county school district? Come on that is ridiculous. I think that the main problem with our school district is its focus on althetics instead of academics. I think that too many parents focus on the performance of the school's athletic teams and not on their performance in the schools. I know that I want my kids to succeed and have more opportunities in academics like music, speech and debate or more clubs like that rather than their ability to kick a ball into a net. The school needs to focus more energy and time on programs that prepare the students for life in the real world. I have never went into a business meeting and used my soccer skills to negotiate a business transaction. I think that as a community we need to re adjust our priorities and show the school system increased support of academics, not athletics.
