I was there when this altercation took place and I'd like to say that there are a lot of great points already made in this thread that I'll refrain from repeating. I would like to say that one of the most disturbing things about the attack was that this was done in front of the children and the image of Haggerty's child crying while pulling on Brigham's leg and crying, will be burned in a lot of people's minds that day. The bottom line is that our coaches are supposed to be educating and instructing our children. I have another son that will be ready for football soon and have no desire to have him witness how to perform an assault on someone. Mr. Brigham needs to step back and realize he doesn't have the mentality to compose himself or keep himself in a position as a child's role model and remove himself from any coaching positions with children. Latest news is that he's being reviewed for a coaching job at Valley Christian. Say it isn't so!
