Harper Creek student will be allowed to play football
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) The head football coach at Harper Creek says that the young man who was told he couldn't play on the football team will now be allowed to play.
18-year-old Austin Bean told the coach that he would be gone for the entire summer and would miss the first four weeks of practice. He was attending boot camp in training for the Army Reserves.
Coach Ed Greenman says that a decision has been made to allow Bean to be a member of the team.
Greenman says that his "intentions were to do what was best for all of the players on our team, not just one individual. If in any way I have offended anyone in our Harper Creek family, I am truly sorry."
The Superintendent of Harper Creek Community Schools says he apologizes to Bean and his family, as well as all who serve our country for any misunderstanding.
