    He also coached one of the Middle School boys basketball teams. I hope that it was for volunteerism and not for his sick satisfaction.

    To resident-
    This man has worked at my school for over 20 years, and I seriously doubt that he would do something like this to such young child, and for you to suggest that he coaches the youth basketball teams for satisfaction, that is just stupid. His son just so happens to be on that team, so next time think before you just take a look at an article and type with your head up your butt.
