Cleveland HS vs Seattle Prep I have been a football coach since 1987 and in that time I thought I had seen it all I had coached several age groups ranging from 5th grade to 12th grade Each age level has a different set of rules or norms Most of the teams I have coached prior to 1999 had been predominantly Caucasian However in 1999 I was hired to coach at Cleveland High School a diverse group which is predominantly African-American It is in a low-income neighborhood in south Seattle This was a complete culture shock to me It was very different to what I was accustomed to The school was run down it was like no one had any respect for this learning institution There was garbage in the hallways graffiti on the walls and students getting in the faces of anyone with authority I myself was threatened at a football camp we had taken the team by one of my own players I had been used too Mountlake Terrace where the school was clean and the staff never felt threatened by a student These kids had different beliefs than any other I had experienced till then They looked out for only themselves because the believed no one else would At the football camp we all got together to tell the team the group a little about ourselves Who we are what we like and dislike about ourselves and why we are here One of our guys had a hard time telling us what he liked about himself He had no problem telling us that he disliked the fact that he would beat someone up just for money Another told us the reason he was here was so that he wouldnt have to go to prison on assault charges What happened here Can this all be blamed on their environment This is a long ways away from what I was used
