I have a daughter who is 8 and she is fairly athletic. She seems to be trending more toward the cheerleader life (sighs) than the athlete life, but if she decides to play soccer, basketball or whatever I will definitely be an active parent.
I will be cheering and probably in the coaches’ ear more than they like, but I could never see myself getting angry enough to do this……
Shelly Miller, 37, reportedly attacked one of his daughter’s basketball coaches earlier this month for making her and her teammates run laps, according to WSBT.
Miller allegedly punched the coach several times before the victim lost consciousness, according to the report. The father attacked the coach after finding out that he made his daughter, as well as other players, run laps for talking back to him. He reportedly went to the school (St. Stanislaus in Michigan City) “five times” to talk to the coach, but a physical confrontation was apparently needed to get his message across.
“Yeah, he hit a coach. [So what?],” family member Wynter Goodwin told WSBT News on Thursday. She then followed that statement with several expletives and charges of racism.
There is obviously more to the story, doesn’t seem like it was an isolate incident, but no matter what the problem is, you can’t resort to physical violence.
Go talk to the Principle, school board, counselor or someone. Beating a man to he is unconscious isn’t going to help anyone, especially Mr. Miller’s daughter.
