Let me get his straight. High school students should not wear red, white and blue to their team’s game because refugees, who are being helped by this country, might get offended?
The Valley High School-Des Moines North State Tournament game was one for the ages. “They played hard,” said Morgan Wheat, an assistant coach at Des Moines North. “We had a chance to win at the end. Hats off to Valley, they made more plays.”
Following the matchup, some fans were more concerned with what was happening in the crowd. Wheat said, “Everything just blows up after the game and I’m still hearing about it this morning.”
Valley students had chosen to wear red, white and blue instead of their school colors black and orange. “Any normal person, any educated person can look at that and think what the hell are these kids thinking,” said Wheat.
