Parent Files Bullying Complaint After Football Team Loses 91-0

FORT WORTH, Tex. (21Alive) -- A high school football coach is under fire after his undefeated team beat another area team 91-0, but the score doesn’t tell the entire story.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Tim Buchanan, coach of the Aledo Bearcats said his team didn’t feel good after the win over Fort Worth Western Hills and that he had spent the 3rd and 4th quarters trying to figure out a way to keep from scoring.

In four District 7-4A games against other area schools, Aledo has outscored the other team by an average of 77 points per game.

Then Saturday morning, Buchanan received notice that a Western Hills parent had filed a bullying report against him saying that he should’ve told his player to “ease up and not play so hard”. Buchanan told the Star-Telegram that he pulled his starters on offense after 21 snaps and continued to run the clock in the third quarter.

The Western Hills coach disagrees with the allegations but Buchanan is taking it seriously and says he has to address the complaint. According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, state law requires that school districts have a bullying complaint form on their websites and that the principal investigates allegations and prepares a written report.
