Coaches Suspend Entire Team

Sometimes in life you have to learn a hard lesson.

That was the case for the Utahs Union High School football team.

Coaches at the high school suspended both the varsity and junior varsity squads right before their homecoming game.

It seems the team had a few academic issues this season as well as some attitude problems.

The week before, coaches learned that a player or players may have been involved in the anonymous cyber bullying of another student.

It just felt like everything was going in a direction that we didnt want our young men going and so we felt like we needed to make a stand, said head coach Matt Labrum.

Following their Friday home game, the coaches made all of their players hand in their jerseys.

Players left the locker room telling their parents the team had been disbanded.

Thayer Centrals homecoming game didnt turn out the way they would have hoped. The Titans were given the task of facing the undefeated Doniphan-Trumbull Cardinals, the 13th-ranked team in the state of Nebraska, Friday night as they fell 13-42 in Hebron.

I thought our boys played pretty well overall, Thayer Central coach Josh Lanik said. We knew coming into the game that Doniphan-Trumbull had a highly explosive offense that usually scores quickly and often.

After falling behind 0-20 in the second quarter, the Titans used a 23-yard pass from Jay Cottam to Connor Mumm to put points on the board.

Fairbury Lady Jeffs volleyball coach Ryan Evans felt the team didnt play for the entire match.

Overall the team just didnt play well. I cant really pinpoint it. It wasnt our passing, or our setting, or our hitting. Beatrice swung more at the net and were able to hit over and around our blocks, and put the ball where it needed to go, Evans said.
