At some point, you are who your record says you are. Four different hs teams...says something about who you are, especially when combined with at least three different college teams.
Here is how PrepHoops explained it. No idea if he was a bad teammate or not.

"While some schools would shy away from recruiting a kid who’s been to all of those schools, it hasn’t happened for Bolton, mostly because it wasn’t really his fault. After his freshman season at Millwood, Head Coach Chaz Starnes stepped down. After a roller coaster year at Carlisle as a sophomore, Head Coach Jason Niblett was let go. After half a season at Bishop Sullivan, the entire athletic department was revamped and he left for Huntington Prep."

I think it was less of a vote, and more that TJ had individual meetings with members of the team and Bolton’s name kept getting brought up.
You are exactly right. I guess I thought my message was pretty clear but clearly some read it literal in that the ballots were counted and read off one-by-one around a fire pit, Bolton then had to grab his jersey and tiki torch and walk out to a waiting boat. TJ didn't have an option based on all his interviews, and those went beyond with just players. This wasn't just a couple players not getting along or a few players not liking one guy because he slept with their girlfriends.

People need to move on as I guarantee you that you're not going to get the details you're looking for from me or others on this. Let's wish him well and look to who we can bring in to fill his production.

I heard they just dumped him outside the city limits with his bags.

I personally think your message was clear, but there will always be those who want to pick a fight. Keep doing the good work. I thoroughly enjoy yours and every staff member’s content.

I guess I just don't understand why we're spending money on tiki torches after Bolton's terrible experience at Penn State. Seems like there would be something better that hasn't been appropriated by the racists out there. Seems awfully insensitive.



If this prompts more clicks, I want a cut.

it doesn’t matter, but moving high schools every time the basketball coach changes is funny

We are an agricultural school, I heard we used pitchforks to escort him out to an awaiting honey wagon. :jimlad:
