Sports mentoring may have just hit a new all-time low.
An an important element of coaching is teaching your team and those looking up to you lessons and guidance both on the field and off. A coaches role is to help them grow up to be good people and ultimately provide them an example to help them make the best decisions. Unfortunately while many coaches receive the memo, other’s unfortunately do not.
In a new viral video that is spreading throughout the Internet, a youth basketball coach can be seen rushing from the sidelines to block his own player’s shot after the young player shot on the wrong basket. Now granted, the player is shooting on the wrong basket but to think the coach would go as far as enthusiastically blocking the shot during a real game is a bit surprising, to say the least. The video cuts off immediately after the block so its unknown what happened next, though there is one thing for sure, that kid will never go in the wrong direction again.
