AL.com- A Louisiana high school football coach said Wednesday the only school not welcomed on his campus is Alabama.
Parkway (La.) High School coach David Feaster told 104.5 ESPN his players can certainly join Nick Saban's Crimson Tide, but he isn't going to help Alabama recruit his kids.
"LSU's welcome in my school anytime," Feaster said. "The only school that can't come to Parkway is Alabama. And there's a long story behind that, but it had to do with not being ethical in their recruiting.
"They can't come. Everyone else is 100 percent welcome."
Whew, it's about damn time someone took a stand to restore the morality in college football. Neil Armstrong just got to put to shame, because this right here is one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind. Seriously, the NCAA must be over the moon that one high school coach - out of hundreds of thousands - is making college football ethical again by instituting a needless ban to protect those that don't want protecting. Nick Saban probably had the most restless sleep of his seemingly miserable life worrying about whether or not David Feaster's push for a code of conduct would spread to other schools in the southeast. Taking away his ability to wander around campuses shaking hands and making empty promises would surely be a death sentence to the recruiting classes of a university that basically serves as a farm team to the entire NFL. No way 18 year old kids with limitless potential would ever consider committing to an institution without looking the weasel that may or may not uphold his end of the commitment in the eye. Risk putting their future in the hands of the head coach who loses one game per season during down years? HA! Good luck Alabama, because your ideals just put on notice in SEC country - where the well being of the kids always come before the well being of the football programs.
