Letter to the Editor regarding Coach Lemons

Tommy and Liz Boyter

My name is Tommy Boyter. My wife is Liz. We have lived in this wonderful parish for the last 20 years.

We moved to this parish, in particular the St. Amant school district, so that our two sons could play athletics for The Gators. This was not by accident.

The rich tradition, the community sprit, the laid back way of life and rural atmosphere is the best that America can provide. The educational programs that are available are most impressive.

We have recently learned about Mr. Lemon’s predicament.

For the last 10 years we have been at almost every home game and attended the majority of our away games.

Both of my sons came up through the baseball program. Both of my sons were never everyday starters. Mr. Lemon’s and his staff gave my two sons more than enough opportunities to earn a starting position. We are proud to say that they played for Mr. Lemons and the Gators.

Our expectation is that this administration has documented and legitimate grounds for this forced resignation and hope that this was not a rush to judgment based on uncorroborated information.
