Courage to Suspend Entire Football Team

After hearing about cyberbullying by members of the high school football team coach Matt Labrum at Union High School in Roosevelt, Utah chose to suspend the entire team and have them turn in their jerseys. They could earn back their jersey and back onto the team through community service among other things. This story from a Salt Lake City television station shares the details. The coach's letter to the team describes the plan. It's an amazing story about a coach, supported by his principal, who had the courage to take a stand against bullying. It's sent a very powerful message to the players, the rest of the student body and through the media to schools across the country.

I'd like to hear what you think about this coach and his choice to suspend the entire team and focus on building character in a positive way.
