Roxton High School Basketball

Disappointed

Dallas, TX

First of all, I would like to start this post by saying that I am not a coach, school employee, parent, student, or family member of anyone on any high school basketball team, anywhere in Fannin or Lamar county. tonight, I attended the Savoy vs. Roxton basketball in Savoy, and I have to say that I was honestly disgusted at how that students and adults from Roxton acted. They did not show good sportsmanship during any part of the varsity boys game. I somewhat expect the childish behavior from the children in the stands, but I did not expect the parents and fans to act so classless. If I were the coach of that team, I would be embarrassed to have to associate myself with them.
Their actions could have possibly been justified if they were losing because of referees making bad calls against them or anything like that, but that was not the case.
As an older person, it saddens me to see these young adults acting so disrespectful to others, while having no discipline or self-respect as well. I do not expect anything to change, because Roxton has acted this way for many years. I pray that these people will grow out of the childish behavior and learn that acting like that is not appropriate.

Again, Roxton showed their wonderful sportsmanship Friday night. I am sure it was more that just Roxton, but isn't it amazing that most of the schools are having these problems with Roxton and not anyone else.

Roxton fans are fools. The team has amazing talent and will go far, but morons back them up in the bleachers. This can cause the players to get a little out if hand as well. I HATE playing them. Thank goodness my child is a girl and we always TCB.
