A youth sports coach is gonna end up dead!

A youth sports coach is gonna end up dead!

Sorry for running a little late on this one, but Monday’s Courier-News piece covered South Elgin High School football coach Dale Schabert being physically assaulted by James Slobodnik, a parent who was irate over his son’s two game suspension.

James Slobodnik

I recount my own interesting experiences as a four year TCSA soccer coach which may not have included an attack (it was close), but were similarly bizarre to say the least.
Because this jerk attacked a school employee while on duty on school grounds, he’s been charged with a Class 3 felony which might mean 5 years and a $25,000 fine. Though that’s unlikely, I’m thinking he should get a  least a month in jail because if we don’t start sending a serious message about this kind of behavior now, it’ll be too late to do it when a coach finally gets shot.
