Illinois high school investigated for appearance by NFL's Colt McCoy

As a UTexas alum, this one caught my attention, and how truly sad and pathetic some of the Statist busy-bodies have become.

Quote:
Ken Leonard, athletic director and football coach at Sacred Heart-Griffin in Springfield, said McCoy, the starting signal caller for the Cleveland Browns, visited the school on March 13 while in town for the annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes banquet. While at the school, McCoy "threw the ball around a little bit" to several students, including football player Malik Turner, prompting a complaint to the Illinois High School Association about whether the workout represented an illegal, off-season practice for the Cyclones.

"He shared his faith and played with them and threw the ball around a little bit," Leonard said of McCoy. "It was unbelievable experience. I'm sorry if any rules were broken, but in this instance, if I was wrong, I don't want to be right."

So nowadays, even a once-in-a-lifetime chance to spend some quality time with a sports idol is considered a violation of some obscure rule?

I doubt any violations occurred or that anything will come of this. From what the article says, it looks like someone from the local public school district made the complaint, most likely just a rival school trying to cause problems.

The title gives it away. This didn't happen in the United States of America, this occurred in the Soviet Socialist People's Republic of Illinois.
