My son’s team has played them twice and each game the said player showed sportsmanship each game. Even helped my son up and patted his helmet after taking the ball from him. Seems to play hard and clean and respects opponents.
Patting a smaller opponent on the helmet after stripping him of the ball could be taken in different ways.
This sounds like it was written by #2’s own Dad, and the poor guy can’t even make up a convincing example of good sportsmanship.
I’ve seen this player and I concur with the majority impression.
