Browns quarterback Colt McCoy has turned out to be a real troublemaker.
In December, his re-entry into a game against the Steelers got the Browns investigated for allowing a player with a concussion to play.
Now, his trip to an Illinois high school has gotten the school investigated for having an illegal practice session.
Specifically, McCoy visited Sacred Heart-Griffin high school in Springfield, and ultimately threw some passes to some of the students. That the prompted Illinois High School Administration to investigate whether the school conducted an unauthorized football practice.
“We had some kids who were out of study hall,” SHG athletic director and football coach Ken Leonard told the State Journal-Register. “Some of the kids didn’t even play football. It was a once-in-a-lifetime chance for them. We’re not making a big deal of it. We don’t want to force the issue. It’s in [the IHSA’s] hands. We’ll do what they tell us to do.”
Hopefully, the IHSA will tell them to ignore the issue, and that the pointy-headed bureaucrat who thought that it somehow amounted to an unauthorized football practice has left the agency to pursue other interests and/or to spend more time with his or her family.
