I totally respect all of the accomplishments of Coach Cross, and all of the lives that he has made an impact on. I wish him luck as he takes on turning around the East Bladen basketball program.
I also would like to say that Mr. Finn made the right decision. Not a decision to get rid of Coach Cross, but a decision to finally make him suffer consequences for his actions. Most people do not know, but West Bladen had to report themselves for rules violations by Coach Cross this spring. Hence, the taking of the keys...John Clark wouldn't report that!!! He applied for the East Bladen and Gray's Creek jobs before West Bladen administration took Coach Cross's keys. A lot of people have made Mr. Finn out to be the bad guy in this situation. But he was only doing the job that he was hired to do. I would like to see them put this behind them, and continue doing a great job of educating children. I wish Mr. Finn and the staff at West Bladen all the best, and I know they will continue to be the best in Bladen county.
