    Your typical old school HS football coach

    Ex-coach allegedly hits students in groin
    January 9, 2007

    MONUMENT, Colo. --A former high school basketball coach faces 39 charges for allegedly hitting male students in the groin, showing them pornography and pouring water on his players then driving them to games in the winter with the windows rolled down.

    Gregory Lynn Burr, 28, face charges ranging from sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust to child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, according to court documents reviewed by The Gazette of Colorado Springs. One of the students claims to have had scrotal surgery because of Burr's alleged assault.

    A student in documents said Burr would ask them, "What is the capital of Thailand?" When they would answer "Bangkok," he would hit them in the groin.

    The incidents allegedly took place from September 2005 to March 2006 at The Monument Academy.

    Burr's phone number in Colorado Springs was not listed. Burr attorney Phil Dubois told The Gazette Monday that the charges are unwarranted, adding, "Mr. Burr is not a sex offender or anything close to it."

    Burr, who was arrested, posted $10,000 bail on Dec. 14, court records show.

    Burr is no longer is employed at the charter school, which is part of the Lewis-Palmer School District 38, said Ted Belteau, the district's executive director of personnel and student services.

    Burr's wife, Sharalee, was athletic director, coach of the girl's basketball team last season and a teacher at the school told the newspaper that she was fired.

    In arrest records, some of the victims portrayed the incidents as Burr's misguided attempts at humor but said they kept quite for fear of getting kicked off the team. One student estimated some of the players were hit in the groin 30-40 times.

    Another said the blows occurred at every practice, with the coach hitting them with his hand, basketballs and tennis balls.

    First of all the story says this is a basketball coach, not a football coach. I'd have to say that this guy is the exception rather than the rule. I know a lot of high school football and basketball coaches and I'm pretty sure they'd be embarrassed by this guy. I've had many coaches throughout my life and I've never experienced anything like that. I don't think this guy is typical.

    We used to play that game...in 5th grade.

    Yeah and it didn't hurt as bad as it does now!!
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Probably because they hadn't dropped yet.

    I think I'd have learned the Thai name for it real fast (per Wikipedia - Krung Thep).

    I'd rather be bagged in the nads than do suicides until I puked them up. Or push that 7 man sled with George Rise's (my football coach) fat-butt riding it and bellowing down at me for an hour.
