Shame on you if you fire Coach Wright

To the Editor:

If you on the Berne-Knox-Westerlo School Board decide at your Oct. 21 meeting to not hire Coach Andy Wright, shame on you…

Does anyone read the sports page and see where a coach is fired for not giving players playing time? Look at the stats: Many times, only five players will play the whole game.

The object is to win, isn't it?

Coach Tom Galvin has resigned as athletic director because of the way things were handled. How do you replace two people who care more about the children at BKW?

I hope everyone from BKW will show up on Oct. 21 to support Coach Wright and Coach Galvin!

Our grandson Garrett Pitcher scored over 1,000 points playing for Coach Wright. We and his other grandparents, Mary Lou and Ted Pitcher, traveled together to most every game and watched Coach Wright work with his players. He is a great motivator and should return as head coach.
