The Moon Crickets of Bangor
It's a term that a Bangor coach used with two of his black athletes. They knew what it meant, and sued in federal court. The matter was ultimately settled in 2015 for an undisclosed amount.
Fast forward to this year. Bangor's shadow Superintendent is Bron Holland, the athletic director and boys' basketball coach. His boys had a wonderful season.Until the end, when he kicked two players off the team.
They happen to be of color. They had an attitude, I'm told.
All stallions have attitudes. A good coach breaks them and turns them unto team players.
Perhaps this coach did all he could do.Perhaps not.
