    In Aledo’s four District 7-4A games they have scored 84, 77, 84 and, of course, 91 points. They also hung 56 points on defending 3A State champs Stephenville.

    Does Aledo have no second or third string? Or, like HPHS, do they just never play them?

    A Western Hills parent has filed a complaint of bullying:

    Yes, and now they are being investigated for bullying those poor kids from Fort Worth. So ridiculous. Looks like one or both of them needs to move to a different district.

    Yes – they put in their 2nd and 3rd string in the 2nd quarter. They are just really good. Also, they threw the ball only 10 times in the game, so they ran the ball all night. Coach can’t tell runners to just fall down. They did not run up the score on purpose. The bullying complaint doesn’t hold water in this case. Not fair to ask student atheltes to not perform after they train and practice so hard.

    @Observer, they played the second and third string. According to the news report last night, coach put them in early, asked that the clock run, etc. No celebrating after the game either. The bullying charge is because he didn’t tell his players to quit trying. Wouldn’t throw stones, XT. When the Scots are winning 55-0, the second and third strings don’t come off our bench until 2-3 minutes left in the 4th qtr.

    @Observer…according to the news reports, the second and third string played from the second quarter on…Western Hills couldn’t stop them. Even the Western Hills coach doesn’t hold a grudge, he said “they didn’t bully us, they just beat us”. I’ve been on the end of lopsided losses before and of course it’s no fun…but I’d be more upset if the winning team quit trying, to me it’d be like a slap in the face.

    In Aledo’s defense; they pulled 1st string after like 20 snaps. Their first team running back got the ball 4 times and ran for a touchdown each time before getting pulled. They only threw the ball a total of 10 times. There were also 2 punt returns for touchdowns. The Western Hills coach even said Aledo did nothing wrong, were good sports, and that Aledo was just that good. What should they do…run the ball until the 1 yard line and then purposefully get tackled or go out of bounds and then kick a field goal instead? This so-called “bullying” in sports is getting out of hand. What are these kids (or their parents) going to do when their company loses a contract to a better performing competitor; go whine to their school counselor?

    Aledo just happens to be in, arguably, the weakest 4A football district in Texas. Their time of possession for the entire game was 7:08 and only required 33 offensive plays. Amazing.

    Reassuring to hear that the coach used his bench.

    @NFW,

    I have in the past, and will continue to, post that it is unsportsmanlike for the Scots to keep their first string in during blowout games. Just poor sportsmanship.

    As to Aledo, I agree that the bullying claim is ridiculous. They didn’t seem to be exhibiting poor sportsmanship. That being said, 91-0 is ridiculous, and yes, you can tell your players to not score. They knew this would be a blowout from the get-go, why 10 passes? Fair catch the punts. There are ways not to score 91 points, let’s not let the “can’t tell the boys to play hard” get in the way of teaching them lessons in sportsmanship and class.

    Here’s my question? How do all these Park Cities bloggers know anything about Aledo? These details are amazing, first hand knowledge stuff.. IJS.
    Can we keep the focus on Park Cities People people?

    XT, given the stats, I’m not sure what else the coach was supposed to do. Quite frankly, I would never trust a football coach to teach class to young men. Given how some of them act, I suspect some of the young men could teach them a thing or two. That said, I wonder what happens when HP finally gets bumped to 5A? Some of the thumpings we handed out may come back to roost.

    @NFW – really sad you think that about high school coaches. Some of these coaches are dad figures to players who don’t have one at home or a dad who is never around. Most times the coaches spend more time with teens during a time in their life where they learn to become a man. Obviously you don’t know how great some past coaches at Highland Park were: Frank Beavers, Scott Smith, Ceciel Holmes and even Don Richardson. Do some research before you make a blanket judgement call like that.
