I wonder how my kids feel knowing that their parents are pond scum. You're just as bad, calling people names. "Do as I say, not as I do".
And if kids read this crap, it's because PARENTS make them aware of it. Do a better job G.
This is,once again an imposter. I don't go for belittling kids EVER, hence my slam on the post that made sexually derogatory remarks about the girl's team. Coaches are fair game but there needs to be some basis in fact. The current girls coaches seem ok. They seem to treat the kids with respect. Anthony is gone and it's time to move on. Dean? Sorry but I've seen him belittle and humiliate kids, act stupid and make comments that he is dumb because he received his education at SA and use the f bomb loud enough for kids from other schools to hear. He smokes on the field with the kids there. The boys deserve better role in a leader and role model

To clarify, I was asking what that person meant. I wasn't comparing players or teams. Just trying to understand the comment.

I understand your sincere concern for the kids. I am just not sure that putting it all over a public forum on the internet is really going to have that much weight as these are not monitored by administration. Unfortunately, I do not have your same view of Dean. Even though I don't share your thoughts but I respect how you and everyone else feels good and bad. I just don't think that smearing someone on the internet is a good and productive way to get your point across. Since you would like to have a better leader for the boys do you have a suggestion? Are you a part of the boosters? I think there are other outlets to make suggestions. Even if that is sitting down with a coach is expressing your thoughts and feelings about the way things are going can create a more positive experience for everyone.

Solution: eliminate all sports, put the money into better educating our kids. they will be better off in the long run for it. getting your name and picture in the newspaper is only good for a day. the next day, somebody else is in there and you are forgotten. a good education lasts a lifetime.

I'm sickened by this post. How dare you ignorant souls get on a computer to degrade and make fun of HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS? This whole post is unbelievable. Sure, SA sports might not be championship teams, but they try. As stated before, SA Softball and soccer teams both have play-off berths in the recent years. The comment that angered me the most was someone calling the girls on the HIGH SCHOOL soccer team lesbians. How dare you insult a group of 14-18 year old KIDS?!?! You sicken me. You do not know these young girls, how dare you stereotype and incorrectly label them. You people here need to grow up, get away from insulting high school students and go back to your absent-minded insults about our town and the people that run it. All you people are just ignorant bullies, hiding behind a computer screen. Leave the children out of this, and get off Glassport Topix and do something constructive to change the town.

Actually speaking to the coach has been tried by me. No luck - in fact he didn't even get it. I have watched him be horrible to other kids in front of their parents and they don't bat an eye. Truthfully I am amazed that this goes on. Parents are not looked at as potential coaches until there is a vacancy. As long as he maintains a contract they will not look to replace him.

playoff berths mean nothing. win your division, the playoffs, and the championship. then talk about it - otherwise shut up. as so aptly put forth on here by somebody else - there is only one winner per classification. everybody else is a loser.

YouPeople THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. While it sometimes feels productive to get things off of your chest and speak your mind, it really isn't going anywhere on a public forum such as this. Except to once again create even more controversy and hard feelings.

And as I said before....someone has to be the voice of the kids!

Thanks again for caring!

My biggest pet peeve in all of this is, yes, sports are somewhat important... what about PSSA test scores??? There are 104 districts in Western Pennsylvania. South Allegheny is number 87 out of 104... EIGHTY SEVEN. What can we do to help the kids who test so poorly and bring our distict down? I've asked. I've taken the proof to school board meetings. No one has an answer.
Let's EDUCATE our kids first and foremost... then worry about which coach is a loser, which team does better than any other. Let's talk about cleaning up or district and raising our standings within the state.
Let me reply to your very good post of what really matters with the district: Education, not sports. First, you are correct with your rankings as a whole. But when you breakdown the high school, middle school, and elementary school results, you'll see that the high school drags down the PSSA results for the district as a whole. The middle school is close to being middle of the road statewide at 467th out of 854. The elementary (5th grade) is even better. Close to being in the upper 35% at 553 out of 1581 statewide. The high school, statewide, is 559th out of 683 high schools. Not the worst, but not very good. Overall, the district as a whole is 416th out of 497 across the state.

My point is, more needs to be done at the high school level, and to a lesser extent at the middle school level, as it is very evident we are losing kids along the way through the system. The elementary kids are doing just fine.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post, and may you have a wonderful week.

Sorry you did not have any luck. Maybe we can all get together Booster wise and meet with the coaches and all lay out our expectations as parents and coaches. We could really support each other and make it great for the kids in the coming years.
