High School Football Coach Suspended for Slapping Player [VIDEO]

A Florida high school football coach is in some hot water after an incident on a nationally televised game.

During the nationally televised ESPN High School Football Kickoff over the weekend, cameras caught Weston (Fl.) Cypress Bay High coach Mark Guandolo giving senior quarterback Lucas Tellefsen an ear full — followed by a swift smack on the helmet. “I should’ve done it a different way,” Guandolo told the Miami Herald after a 38-14 loss to American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.) School. “I hugged him after and just tried to find ways to get him to compete and he did. He really finished strong and I was proud of him.” The slap occurred after Tellefsen overthrew a receiver on a third-and-seven from the 25-yard line with his team trailing American Heritage just 14-7 in the second quarter. Guandolo will be on suspension for three weeks.

Now I played high school football, granted I am not from Texas and I know you guys take your high school football very seriously down here. I do not have a problem with the coach using this as a motivational technique, it happens all the time. When I was in high school I had a coach blindside a kid from the back and throw him into the dirt for not blocking properly. This was a kid that would never start a day in his life and he was just happy to be on the team. After a meeting with our head coach, that assistant was let go later that week.
