So, the talk was not a rumor? Who is the next coach? I have no animosity against Clifford, but he has been there a long time and maybe it was time to retire. Does the hazing have any bearing on the school's decision? Did he retire or let go?

He decided it was time. He was not let go. It was his choice. He has really been struggling since losing his daughter. The coaching helped keep his mind off it some, but he will never get over it, only get through it. He is a good guy and a good coach. It's just been a rough few years. No word yet on his replacement. Hopefully they will hire someone who has experience and not just move one of the other coaches up. We need a really good coach in there. Big shoes to fill. We will miss you coach Clifford!

It's time to sit out by the pool and relax coach! You know we all love you for who you are and what you have taught us throughout all the years of your hardwork and dedication! I was just wish we could have got that state championship back in '01 or '02. Anyways thanks for being a great coach and always believing in us no matter what!

PENN STATE all over again. Some of the player told us he also knew what was going on. And who were uppy class football players parents? Huh. We know that they subspenced some of them. Why weren't they Expelled for good? Huh ? Rich parents didn't hurt here did it. Maybe next year we will have a half way good coach. Anything will better that this year. I forget did we really have a win this year?

The last time I heard, working at Walmart doesn't make you rich. It obvious you have no idea who the kids were or anything about the situation. Keep your nose out of it. You would be disappointed of you did know the whole story, because there isn't much to it.

Coqch Clifford has been going through a lot and for people to take the one thing that brings him joy and try to twist it around like this is cruel. He did not let anything go on in his locker room. This is nothing at all like Penn State, so people shouldn't compare the two. Penn State was a horrible pervert who molested young boys. This incident was one boy acting like he was going to rape a kid, but both had their clothes on and nothing really happened. Stop spreading rumors and lies. This is ridiculous!

Why does the Penn State thing keep coming up? This had nothing to do with the coach or any coach to that matter. I am so sick of hearing this commment over and over again. I never played for Coach Clifford, as matter of fact I did not even go to Portsmouth, but my son is a freshman there and played for him and has nothing but the utmost respect for the man. People on here bad mouthing him, and for what? It's high school football. It's not about the adults that come on here and gripe and complain about the program. It's about the kids playing football and hopefully learning some life lessons from it. And when I read some of the comments obviously some adults syill haven't learned some of the life lessons. I'm proud to say that I am a "TROJAN".

So let me get this straight, you are saying that you are an "uneducated loser." That's funny because I know of several people who have graduated from PHS and have gone on to successful careers. Does that mean they are losers? I mean you just stated that PHS is uneducated losers. No I didn't graduate from PHS, I graduated from East High School. But my kids go to PHS and I'm proud to say they go there. Life isn't just about sports, and it seems some people seem to forget that. I know many people who are nurses, school teacher, police officer, and doctor's who have graduated from PHS, are they uneducated loser. Make a difference. Ask what you can do to help. I know a lot a people who would be offended by your comment of uneducated losers. I mean, look around there is plenty of successful people around that graduated from PHS.
