WESTLAND, Mich (wxyz) - The superintendent of the Wayne-Westland schools calls what happened in the football locker room at John Glenn High School a "poor choice" by the coaches. The student at the center of it all and his parents call it a threat.
That's because there was a picture of Quavon Smith up in the locker room at the high school reportedly to show the players who to go after in Friday night's game. Quavon used to go to John Glenn, but now goes to Huron High in Ann Arbor. Quavon admits that when he was at John Glenn there was some tension between the coach and him and his dad.
On Tuesday, Quavon started getting text messages and emails saying the coaches told the players to "take him out" and " finish him".
Superintendent Greg Baracy says the coaches assured him they never said that, although the picture was up in the locker room and Baracy says he told them to immediately take it down. Baracy says just having the picture up in the locker room was inappropriate, but he believes his coaches and players will be professional and play with good sportsmanship on Friday night.
Still, Quavon says the whole thing upsets him and he won't be playing Friday night because he doesn't want to take a chance.
