Parents and coaches said Saturday at the game that they were excited to see the team play again, though some parents expressed lingering frustration about the suspension.
The parent of an alleged victim told Channel 2 they would’ve preferred the team not play again so soon, but that the boys did appear happy to be taking the field.
“Kids really want to be on a team, they really want to be part of a team, they really are excited to be back,” said Derek Brewer, the new Dimond High School head coach. He was named in the position following the firing of former head coach Benardo Otero and two assistant coaches by the Anchorage School District.
