Hopefully Tim McClendon can get on with his life and get an education!! Football comes and goes but without an education where will he be? Let's hope SM stands behind him now that he is ineligible for sports and gets him the help he needs to graduate!! After all isn't that what started his move to SM originally.. to get an education??
Channel 3 is reporting that Signal lost its appeal. CASE CLOSED!!
Signal Mountain says they want to help a child who by his own confession has trouble in math, english and reading but hopes to do well enough to graduate. His mentor/father figure and assistant coach Shane Roberson "who has served as McClendon's mentor at three schools since meeting the teenager as his middle school math teacher" helped him get into Signal Mtn. If he was his mentor/father figure, why is McClendon doing so poorly in math, which is the subject Roberson teaches? Roberson has been at 3 schools with McClendon but he still struggles in math! Is that not a "red flag" that would prove the fact that he is only there because of football? I hope the TSSAA sticks by their origianl decision to take away Signal's games and I hope without football that McClendon doesn't fall through the cracks at Signal.
