Amazing. couple shared observations

Finding a "man among boys" is more and more frequent in lower levels. One of the hardest challenges to be fair to unequaled talents. Coaching a kid thats still developing skills to manage a player 18 inch's taller and 2 years more mature is impossible.

The presure on these Kids gets out of control. Its a game and every night SOMEBODY looses.

Hindsite; Was a preventative officiating step missed? Sounds like (from the stands anyway) you could see this coming.

Seen and experienced hostile Father / Son tandem's before. Its a challenge. Haven't seen a Mother / daughter one yet.
