Northern Guilford: Poor sportsmanship?

I’ve noticed the heat Northern Guilford football coach Johnny Roscoe has taken over the past few days for supposedly running up the score in the Nighthawks’ 64-26 victory over Charlotte Catholic in the state 3-AA championship game.

In today’s N&R sports section, Richard Losee writes (unposted):

..I was appalled that Coach Johnny Roscoe would run a trick play with his team miles ahead and less than one minute remaining.

Greensboro should be proud of Northern Guilford and totally ashamed of their classless coach.

Losee is from Charlotte, as is Bill Sheehan, who says that while Northern’s players got an ‘A’ for the game, Roscoe gets “an ‘F’ for the teaching of integrity for a lifetime.”
