Mark Watts (Former Athlete, Eight Bars Member)
Ath-e-letes deserve good coaches
My child and those of the unspeaking parents I represent,
Believe we have not gotten good coaches
At Taylorville High School.
As such we are pressuring the school district
To give a full accounting
Of the hiring processes for coaches,
The development of coaching competency,
The evaluation process of coaching,
The financial commitment of the district to sports-
Because we believe,
The money would be better spent there.
Our ath-e-letes deserve better,
Our tax commitment deserves better,
I played and I know what it takes,
This ain’t it.
That’s what we believe.
