Talk about Coach Bush concerns reader

To the citizens of Cannon County,
I have recently heard some negative comments about a good friend of mine in the local coffee shops and around town that compelled me to write this letter to the editor.
I’m talking about our Cannon County High School head football coach Mr. Brent Bush and his decision to fly to Oregon to watch his two sons play football for Tennessee Tech University against the Oregon Ducks.
Coach Bush’s two sons played in this game side by side on the defensive line. That is a dream situation for those two young men and their family.
Even though the rest of the coaching staff, including myself encouraged him to go, even though he agonized over the decision to go, even though he made preparations for the York game with the rest of the coaching staff, even though the rest of the coaching staff was perfectly capable of managing the game in his absence and even though the players, who all realize we are family and how important family is wanted him to go. Given all of that he was still criticized by some in this community.
