My feeling is, the player who was caught for underage drinking is as much to blame as the coach. The article says that the player was a prominent one on the team. Wow, what a real team player in blowing off your team just to have some alcohol. I hate when these situations happen. My senior year our best player and the conference mvp was busted for underage drinking between regional games and was kicked off the team. I never drank in high school unlike a lot of kids but if you cannot control for 3 months (especially the last 3 weeks) your desire to drink, then you have serious problems already. If the player doesn't decide to go out drinking during the season, then the coach wouldn't have had to lie about it. Both parties are equally responsible.


DKelly I agree 100%. I feel the exact same way as you do in reference to the player not "controlling" themself. Sadly, though it is in the coaches duty to adhere to rules and guildelines. I guess that is why I hold him more accountable.

Everybody knows you hate private schools, but there is no need to say anything like that. There are god kids that are no longer playing softball that did things the right way.

If what was said in the Article is true Assumption did the right thing and handled the situation properly. Its a sad situation when you read about this. As somebody who played high school sports I wish I could go back and play again and its troubling when kids fail to realize that and they drink and get caught and hurt themselves and the team.

You are a complete idiot. This thing happens at public schools as often as private. If anything you should be complimenting the school for taking action in correcting the wrong that was made and admitting there was a problem.

I feel really bad about this. I know the player involved and I Coach Getzloff.

Coach was going to retire this year. Getzloff was one heck of a guy. Always cracking a joke about himself or a good natured jab at someone he knew at the game. He built the Assumption program to what it is now, a contender year in and year out. Getzloff is a great guy, and he will be missed around in the dugout at Robinson Park.

Hopefully everyone involved in the situation has learned something.

Complement the school? For doing their job? Sorry, public or private, that's just what you need to do. Can you imagine the situation of a school covered this up and it was found out later in the playoffs or after the season was done?
We've already seen it in basketball......just a joke.

I know it happens at publics as well. Thing is, they don't flaunt the "moral high ground" as much as privates....i mean, that's why parents send their kids there, right....for the Christian education? Seems those parents could have sent their kids to the public school and saved a few grand....or maybe they can get a partial refund.

Consider letting all of the details about what actually happened get out before you rush to judge.

Quite frankly, in the end result, obviously there is nothing that would make it "ok." But, I think there are many ways that this could have happened that as a result, would stop people from thinking that this was such a sickening act by the coach. In the end, yes, it was a terrible mistake, and something I know for a fact he wishes he could reverse.

Agreed. I saw that a few players from the team actually voiced their opinion and didn't hide behind a screen name. refreshing to see.
