Coaches, leaders speak out against proposal
VERNON HILLS – State. Rep. Carol Sente insists she’s not trying to do away with football by introducing a bill that would limit how much high school players could hit one another in practice each week.
But the majority of coaches, athletic administrators and parents who attended a public forum on the proposed legislation introduced by the Lincolnshire Democrat agree that governing high school sports shouldn’t be part of lawmakers’ duties.
Instead, they suggested that rather than focusing a law on how high school football coaches go about their business, state legislators should trust those charged with not only getting teams ready to play each Friday night, but in protecting the teenagers who play for them.
