Coach Boone began his speech with information his audience needed to know, “fifty thousand men died right here on this field, fightin’ the same fight that we're still fightin’ amongst ourselves today” (American Rhetoric). Coach Boone’s football team knew about the Gettysburg battle, but never connected it to a football game, knowing this came from how the boys reacted to the speech. Each boy on the team came to the realization that they were in the wrong, by Coach’s passionate appeal; which is what he was aiming for.

In the article, "Utah football coach suspends entire team to build character," by Deseret News, Utica High School football coach, Matt Labrum, takes a stand. When it comes to high school football, teachers and coaches tend to be very passive about the boys behavior and grades. I really admire what Labrum did, even though it may have been a hard descion. The boys deserved any punishment they got after cyberbulling, disrespect, and lack of effort when it came to their grades. Most people would just ignore their innapropiate actions just so they could continue with the season.
Chris Bachelder, the author of “Rewatching the Theismann Injury”, published on November 18, 2015 by the New York Times, did a good job of further informing football watchers of the events that occurred when Washington Redskin quarterback, Joe Theismann suffered a career ending injury.

For example, Bachelder recalled that he was young at this time and his

One of the major factors in the Penn State scandal was blind loyalty to one individual with total disregard for the children and the lives he was destroying. Many believe the four individuals that had the control to step in and stop this from happening either did not do so for fear of destroying the program or the hopes that it would somehow stop on its own (Crandall 2013). Jerry Sandusky was a top assistant and defensive mastermind for thirty years with Joe Paterno as the head coach.
He along with others were fighting for improvement of Texas schools in a myriad of ways. The primary focuses were compensation of teachers, apt technology within schools, and the quality of the curriculum. Perot also attacked the very heart and soul of high schools in the state, their football programs, with no remorse. He once said “[Legislature] is scratching to put the funds together to keep our school system from being declared unconstitutional, and you’re out there saying, ‘Keep sending that state money because we need to spend our local money on sixteen football coaches and matching shirts for them so we can be the big boy in the district.’” to a principal. (Hobby) This is precisely what the problem was at Permian and other schools in Texas.
