Get off the coaches. If you think you can do any better, then have at it. They are not sorry. Do you even know them? And yes, I do. They sacrifice time with their families day after day to go out and work with these kids as a group and as individuals. I know for a fact Dusty Roden worked with one kid almost every day this past summer on his own time to help him get his pitching arm strengthened. So GET OFF OF HIM!!!

AS A MATTER OF FACT, I DO KNOW THEM AND I DO THINK I COULD DO BETTER...a monkey could do better. I've experienced his coaching of my son firsthand. He's an egomaniac and only "sacrifices" his time to his "pet" players. My son (who by the way was the deaf player on the team last year) sacrificed his time 4 days a week to practice, gave a 110% every practice, always respected his teammates and coaches and only got to bat ONE TIME in 12 games. He may not have been the best player on the team but fact is he was ON the team and he had more heart and more drive than anyone on that team. He sat in that dugout game after game with the coaches telling him "we are going to put you in" but never did. He never saw any playing time except for one at bat. When we are getting our a**es kicked with no hope of winning why shouldn't the kids who never see any time on the field get to play?? They don't get better sitting on the bench. It was because of "Rodents" ego. And when I stood up against his ego and pulled my son from the dugout with 10 minutes left in the second game of a double header at 10:30 on a school night an hour from home because he obviously wasn't going to play your precious "Rodent" stripped his jersey off of him, kicked him off the team and forced him to leave the field wearing his undershirt in front of his teammates, spectators and opponents...a good coach humiliates his players like that?? I DON'T THINK SO!! It's difficult enough for any kid with disabilities to "fit in" and do things that other kids do but when they find a place, something they are really good at and it makes them feel like they are just like every other kid then to be treated that way by a coach, an adult, someone he's supposed to respect and admire..what a joke!! He's arroagant and he's crooked...he played his varsity players against JV opponents just so he'd have the advantage over them which is why he was denied entry into one of the tournaments last year. Oh, then there's the issue of the $5,000 in fundraising money that came up missing and the president of the organization was "relieved of his duties" when the coaches were the last known people to have possession of the money!! "Rodent" wants to win and he doesn't care who he has to step on to do it (even if it's a disabled kid) and could care less if he teaches his players anything other than that!! So don't tell me to GET OFF HIM..as long as he's the coach and as long as I'm around I will be his loudest opponent and I DON'T CARE who likes it!!

I went to the principal, Sam Houston, and the superintendent, Ken Hardin and they both said they don't have any control over the program or decisions that the coaches make.

I pray you never have to watch your child lie in a hospital bed and fight for their life like mine did for the first 3 months of his life then be left with disabilities that they have to overcome the rest of their life only to watch them be treated the way my son was...unless you've experienced it you'll never understand and until you do you've got no room to tell me to "let it go"!! We may have some good coaches but Roden isn't one of them. Being a good coach isn't about your win/loss record...it's about what you are teaching the kids and he's teaching them that an over-inflated ego and arrogance are good qualities to have and that it doesn't matter who you step on on your way to the top.

If Posey and Roden resigned from being football coaches at NJ, why do they still want to coach baseball for NJ? I'm pretty sure if it was that easy of a decision for them to leave the football program, it will be that easy for them to leave the baseball program as well. Wonder how the players feel, not knowing from one day to the next, if they're gonna have a baseball coach or not? I'm pretty sure it's kind of hard for the players to have any respect for Roden and Posey.

That's too bad, Posey was one of the good ones. He probably got tired of being associated with a coach like Roden.

Posey? He isn't arrogant or self absorbed or cocky like Roden. He treated my son, and from what I saw, everyone on the team with respect. So that alone makes him a better coach and person than Roden because it takes a coach who IS a person of good character to coach young people to BE people of good character. Coaching is about way more than teaching someone to throw or catch or hit a ball. Coaches impact kids lives and Roden's impact is a negative one.
