When lipps let the young man go on vacation i new it was over. Well I new it was over when the coach and all the others testified what great football players i mean people these young men were. I new nothing was going to happen to them. And what they did was horiffic How could the coach knowing what they did be on there side and still let them play. And kick others off the team. All i can say is what a disgusting bunch of people all involved are. And I hope you are punished to the last one.
