Peter is a local insurance broker/agent who was on Kidz “n” Sports a couple months ago promoting a toy drive for the Boys and Girls Club of Whittier.   Peter is doing a lot of good work now including prison ministry, and helping others around him.  But his story wasn’t always so positive.

Tune into Kidz “n” Sports this week to hear Peter’s story and how youth sports helped to change his life around.  Kidz “n” Sports airs every Wednesday at 9 AM on the internet at www.AdrenalineRadio.com.

Coach Evans Roderick on Kidz “n” Sports

In case you missed it, here’s the video of the Mt. Sac player who allegedly slugged a referee during a recent game.  Actually the player hit the ref accidentally with his elbow.  No punch or slug like the media suggests in their headlines.  The player has been suspended for five years essentially ending his football career.  But is that the appropriate punishment for this situation?

One of Bernard Schirmer’s coaches, Coach Evans Roderick joins me today on Kidz “n” Sports.  We will compare this situation with others that you may have seen over the last year.  A few are shown later in the video.  Tune in to at 9 AM Pacific time.  Miss the live show, look for the podcast up on Friday at www.kidznsports.com.
