Cyberbullying leads coaches to suspend entire football team

Posted: Updated:
ROOSEVELT, UT -

Coaches at a high school in Utah suspended the entire football team this week- both varsity and junior varsity - right before the big homecoming game.

There were several reasons including poor grades and accusations some players engaged in cyberbullying.  But their season isn't over.  They're being given the option to play again under some specific terms outlined in a letter signed by the entire coaching staff.  It calls for the election of new team captains, two days of community service, a character education class and a study hall.

“We're still practicing, but we're practicing some different skills,” said Matt Labrum, Head Coach.  “I think it's going to bring our team closer and I think we're going to be more accountable, not only for ourselves, but for our buddy next to us.”

As for the school district, administrators say they've had nothing but support from parents.
