OT: Pahokee dismissed from 7 on 7 tourney
I was reading an article about the Nike 7 on 7 camp and came across this interesting note about our favorite school in the muck:
"Northwestern and Pahokee (Fla.) stood atop of their respective pools after day one of the event. The Bulls and Blue Devils appeared to be on a path to meet in the finals. However, Pahokee was dismissed from the tournament for 'a variety of reasons' regarding a lack of respect for others, according to camp officials.
'Every team was briefed on our code of conduct policy on Wednesday. We had a conversation with every team about what the expected level of behavior would be on campus. Essentially, [Pahokee] violated that code of conduct, and they were dismissed from the tournament.'"
Now, I don't personally know the players who have come up to Michigan, however I have heard that they are good hardworking individuals. It just makes me wonder how/if a change of environment could affect these kids.
