2021 POO Awards – Week 8

Each week during this year’s high school football season as I have in previous years, I’m giving out a weekly POO Award to the Wisconsin high school football team that committed the most egregious act of poor sportsmanship by trying to humiliate its opponent.

My goal is to try to build awareness of the importance of sportsmanship.

POO stands for Piling OOffensively (Or if you prefer, Pouring it On Offensively)

Week 8

St. Mary Catholic/Valley Christian 82, Elkhart Lake – Glenbeaulah 7

Week 7

Lake Holcombe 78, South Shore 6

Athens 68, Sturgeon Bay 0

Mineral Point 66, Parkview/Albany 0

Week 6

And what about Wauwatosa West, winners of two Poo Awards this season?

It does come back to bite you.

    • Last night on another social media site I chastised my Franklin Sabers a bit for continuing to throw the ball after they led 56-7 in the second half. Some Franklin residents thought I had lost my mind. Apparently if you put in the scrubs it’s ok to keep the scoreboard moving in the upward direction.

      Clearly there continues to be a lack of understanding on this topic. No wonder coaches and teams keep piling on.
