That day, the mother was volunteering at the school like she had been doing for the past year and she looked for help someone told her to go see Randy and he called the police for her upon seeing the student's injuries.

Kenneth, I agree with you 100%, being a parent and the softball mom with my oldes there about 6-7 years ago w/Coach Howard. Got one there now and Howard gets in the middle when the Administration asked him to. Howard takes pride in having good communication with the students. Something smells fishy.
