It would be one thing if this was a high school practice, but this is at a D-2 College, we had much worse "abuse" by my high school & college football coaches and we wouldn't have dreamed of reporting anything to the police or lawyers. It goes with the territory in a contact sport, if you can't handle contact, or an intense drill, go play golf, tennis or run track there are plenty of options.
Sad thing is this is coming up more and more, my wife coaches basketball and volleyball and sees it daily, talking with other coaches at other schools it's the same thing. I was covering a few games at an area varsity boys basketball game, and they had a couple kids who cried after getting pulled, and told what they were doing wrong, not yelled at, they were calmly told what they had done wrong and boom->waterworks. I realized I had to close my jaw and stop staring but I was in shock.
The coach looks like he wants to backhand the kid through the interview, I think I would too. Agreed completely BG, this kid's a pussy.
