    I alos think this coach is a fool if he thinks they only need a few hours to recover.

    They should not be in pads for 24 hours.


    New coach.

    I'd say Coach Mack Malone kind of messed up his priorities a bit on this one.

    Probably will have a new coach for the 2007 season, don't you imagine?

    I doubt he was unaware that SIX of his players were giving blood either....

    So then he was going to "show them" who was boss, right? HA!

    Good for those SIX players...they have their priorities in order!

    The Willis team, which has not won any games this season,
    I’m shocked a team so well coached could go winless.

    Giving never hurt so much...

    Doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that the coach screwed the pooch on this, and the Super is trying to cover his butt.
    Time for a new coach......
    ...not that they'll miss him.......

    Six football players kicked off the Willis High School team after they were tardy to practice for giving blood are being offered reinstatement today.

    "They were not dismissed because they donated blood. But that they did it right at the beginning of athletic period. They were missing practice and were late," said Willis Superintendent Brian Zemlicka.

    When the players gave blood, they had to sign statements that they would not do any physical activity for two to three hours, said Zemlicka, raising health issues, especially after the sudden deaths of several young football players in the Houston area.

    "Some players had given blood earlier in the morning and had time to recover," he said, unlike the six players removed from the team.

    Elizabeth McKenna-- whose son Phillip, a senior, was reinstated after meeting with the coach, athletic director and principal--expressed relief.

    "The coach (Mack Malone) apologized and said he had not acted appropriately," she said.

    None of the players had been warned not to give blood, parents said. Also, the players had been assigned and not chosen the times that they made their donations to the school's blood drive, parents said.

    The six players, including a team captain, were shocked when told to pack up their gear, parents said. The Willis team, which has not won any games this season, had three games left to play, parents said.

    "I'm very pleased that my son is back on the team," McKenna said.

    Four of the six players have met with school officials so far and Zemlicka said he will give a full statement about the issue at the end of the meetings later this afternoon.

    Six high school football players are back on the team in.

    One day after their coach kicked them off for donating blood, the Willis high school students were reinstated this morning.

    Coach Mack Malone dismissed them when he learned they skipped practice yesterday to attend the school blood drive.

    The coach apologized to the players today but as a punishment for skipping practice the teens will be suspended for one game.

    Jeff Chachem says, "We did lose our starting positions. We do have to work and run to get them back. It's still showing that we're being punished."

    "I'm not going to be able to look at him the same, the way he treated all six of us just wasn't fair at all," says another player Garrett Scott.


    A couple of the players are seniors and are hoping to get a college scholarship.
