Pahokee AD: “There will be a punishment” for theft at Nike tournament

  • 12:35 pm Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009 by Jason Lieser

Despite his football team’s recent dismissal from a 7-on-7 tournament, Pahokee athletic director Tom Mejia believes he has a relatively well-behaved team.

The Blue Devils were sent home one day into Nike’s 7on tournament in Beaverton, Ore. for allegedly stealing football gloves off of a display at the facility. Mejia said the school is investigating the situation internally and believes the theft involved only one player. If that is the case, smearing the reputation of the rest of the players and coaches on the team is unfair, Mejia said.
