Nobody likes to be yelled at. And yet an increasing number of fans are vocal about criticizing our coaches and officials.
Treat the men and women who make high school sports possible with courtesy and respect. Yell for your team as loud and as often as you’d like, but—please—never yell at our coaches and officials.
