That’s one of the primary reasons I got out of coaching


Parents. Ugh. So many of them think a) their kid is better than he/she really is and b) sports is their kids ticket to college and eventual wealth.

Worst case I ever saw was a Poly mom whose boy was our starting varsity QB for 4 years but, unfortunately, wasn’t nearly as good at baseball. He barely made the varsity baseball team as a senior but she thought he was the next Mike Trout. Her temper and attitude led to embarrassing confrontations almost every practice and game. City police had to get involved when she started bringing large male relatives to try to bully our HC. After the season, she had the nerve to tell (not ask) the HC to contact BYU’s coaches to tell them to sign her son. Comical yet sad. Kid never went to college. Last I heard he stocks shelves for Coke.
