I have read alot of the post on this story and stories from the past. I understand all "sports" chatter that goes on during a particular sport season and of course football is at the top for the most. But I have to say this goes beyond. I am a Signal Mountain resident and so happy for the community being able to get the high school that was so badly wanted. I'm sadden that a few individuals have put such a black cloud over what so many worked hard for and have continued to work hard for. Our family was contributors to the sports boosters program from day one without even having a child in any of the sports. And I will admit I have never cared for Price but didn't want my opinion of his coaching to affect our wanting to help the sports programs get off the ground. I had faith that one person could not have such a hold on a school. But I have been in the school and have watched what takes place. Last years problem before state was an absolute let down, yes KIDS disappoint us put they are kids, it was the way in which our principal and coach handled it and was tragic. It was at that time our family made a decision there is much better places to contribute our money. I know our decision to not contribute to the sports program will not break the program but feel others will follow if these types of issues keep happening. At some point what goes up must come down and from all indications Price won't stay. We will see. In reading my my above statement that I did not have a child participating in sports that was at the beginning when the school opened and critics of my post my say I have no knowledge of sports or how they work, well you are wrong I was raised in a sports family and have been and continue to be involved beyond these hills and we are active on a national level and deal with the politics on a weekly bases and when winning deal with the haters and losing deal with the winners. So in a nutshell I know what I am talking about. I will agree our school has alot of haters but I also think the school has brought it on them self. I am proud of the accomplishments the school has had in such a short time. But when SPORTSMANSHIP (lack of) it really makes it all a little less sweet, for us that understand SPORTSMANSHIP. My last comment also is I wish everyone could take all this energy they have put into this type of craziness and apply it to much more important issues. Say maybe EDUCATION.
