Coach Matt Labrum talks to his players on Tuesday after they performed community service at the Uintah Basin Rehabilitation and Senior Villa in Roosevelt.

Utah's Union High School head football coach, Matt Labrum, believes that football creates men of excellence. So, when he saw his players acting disrespectfully to teachers, skipping classes, and cyberbullying students, Labrum knew something had to be done. "We felt like everything was going in a direction that we didn't want our young men going," said Labrum, who's coached for the past two years. "We felt like we needed to make a stand."
One of the school's guidance counselors told the coaches that a student felt bullied by the football players in an online chat program called ask.fm. Labrum met with the student on Monday and apologized for the cruel words of his players. "We were pretty open with (the players) about what we'd heard. We don't want that represented in our program… Whoever it is (doing the bullying), we want to help get them back on the right path," said the coach. Even the teachers weren't being treated well by the football players, and Labrum grew concerned that his team wasn't "respecting the teachers, what they were trying to do inside the school, other people's time.
...
Labrum laid out the situation very clearly to the boys, making sure they understood that "we need to focus on some other things that are more important than winning a football game.
