Sometimes life isn't fair. That's one reason that Ketchikan has not been able to beat Juneau because of favoritism in sports by a coach. This has been done for years and years and every one knows this. I think that soon it will catch up and the kids will stop playing sports or quit keeping their grades up if coaches like this are allowed to keep coaching.
I believe there are a lot of kids that are being left behind because of the way some coaches are picking favorite kids. The ones that should have been picked see this and have a very negative attitude towards sports which in turn may hurt their grades in the schools.
Who puts their foot down Don? All coaches are not like this. There are a few which make the Ketchikan sports program look bad when a few coaches are allowed to get away with favoritism.
