    Okay, I go to Centerburg Ohio High School, Yes i do believe everything and there is proof, But, think about it everybody the alleged girl was 19, and hello that’s not a minor! Yes i agree some form of punishment should be made but, I do not think he should be fired because the alleged girl was not a minor, so how could you fire him if the girl was over age? Yes there was an inappropriate picture so something should be done about that, but i do not agree he should be fired. He is a great teacher and coach and I think he deserves to still be a teacher and a coach. There has never been an incident at school or at a practice or meet, so why should he be fired. The parents who think that he should be fired. Think about it what besides the picture what was so wrong? This alleged girl was not under age so please tell me why should he be fired?
