Heck yeah! So proud of this kid! And just a little? Shoot its all over the web! Love it!
I applaud the young man from Hedgesville for never quitting. That takes heart. Whistle had been blown and the play was dead so there was no reason for the player to even pick up the young man from Hedgesville
I saw this on our local news in Colorado!!! Wow, what a player.
A friend of mine in Covington, Va saw the news and shared with me !
Go Kagen !!!
Good effort made by Teets. He gets interviews and the footage is shown pretty much everywhere. Good effort made by number 2 and he gets rediculed, threatened and becomes the victim of the harshest comments by adults. Yes, it’s football. Yes, it’s a tough sport. Yes, he should have thick skin and hopefully he does. It’s really sad that adults are being the worst offenders in this. This was funny. It could have stayed that way, but instead it turned really ugly. Hopefully he has friends and family that can get him through this. He didnt do anything wrong. He does not deserve being told to end his life or move out of the country.
That's just Great for the kid from Musselman but do any of you even care about the player from Hedgesville? Do you think he is loving this? What if he can't handle the embarrassment of this and God forbid do something to himself? Will it be funny and worth the 15 mins of fame then? I sure do hope that the young man from Hedgesville has big shoulders and can roll this off of his back.
I just saw on Metro News his play was voted #1. Great for the eastern panhandle and Musselman.
No one is mentioning the fight that pursued right after the camera stopped rolling and 3 musselman players got kick out of the game.
If it would have happened on any college or NFL game it would be all over the internet as well. These kids didn’t know that it would be. They were just playing football. Geez people! By the way if you see the replay it was a touchdown.
Saw it at half time Steelers game
Shared it on my page and it got likes from my family in Italy 😍😍😍
Saw it but didn't realize it was local. Way to go!

Hey, Journal, why didn't you interview the other player and see how he feels about the play? Ask him if he is enjoying the 15 mins of fame.
The comments from adults on the ESPN post are disgraceful, disgusting and embarrassing.
Without context I didn't understand why #2's team left him hanging. Now that I know that the whistle had been blown and the play dead it makes sense.
#2 has got spunk and guts. Lets be honest, He was outsized and didn't care. He still went for it. I'd rather have that kind of player on a team (sports, work as a friend in my corner) any day.
While so many others are making fun I want to give a high 5 to #2 for meeting this challenge of unintentional social media fame head on. How you respond to this could make you the real hero of the story for a lifetime. Don't let it define you now or ever. You define it!
His team better have his back in the halls and classrooms as I'm sure it's been ugly.
The Journal and Schools need to cover the impact of unintentional social media fame. While one person gets glory there is usually someone else who gets hurt.
"3 C's of Social Communication
Conduct. Control yourself, and check-in with yourself. Never put a temporary emotion on the permanent internet. If you're offline, tempers are about to flare, remember, the glare of a smartphone could be only steps away.
Content. Ask yourself if this will embarrass or humiliate someone or yourself. Fifteen minutes of humor is never worth a lifetime of humiliation. Are you truly prepared to go viral? Being Internet infamous is not a good place to be.
Caring. When posting with empathy it's impossible to be cruel. Even if you are in a heated debate online, be constructive, not combative. Are you posting a controversial comment or video that may hurt people? Is this really the way you want to be recognized? When in doubt - give yourself permission to click out. "

Out of the entirety of this article the tipping point of ridiculousness is the request to turn Sportsmans Paradise into a state park. Seriously you can't make this stuff up.
An appropriate first step would be to STOP the seemingly uncontrolled amount of development you allow in this county. Resources and infrastructure are already maxed out!! Why keep approving subdivision after subdivision, endless strip malls that sit mostly empty??? Y’all need to quit expecting the taxpayers to foot the bill. We pay enough already!!
A room FILLED with leaders and these are the answers they come up with? Tax us who are here, have been here more! Instead of taxing us, up our fire fees, taxing the friggin stormwater when we dont have city sewer or water how about this. TAX DAN RYAN! TAX HIM AND HIS TOWNHOUSES. People don't want to pay the increased prices.......problem solved. Put a moratorium on townhouses, demand single family homes on a quarter acre or more. Tax Dan Ryan and collect for the roads, schools, and turn up the heat on the state police captain. Every time I call Charleston they openly tell me none of the officers want to work in the panhandle. That's on the politicians and the SP Captain. Dan Ryan is absolutely destroying this area with town houses and as far as I have been able to find he pays ZERO additional fees other than what the EPA dictates. THAT IS ABSURD! Berkeley County for the most part is the edge of the DC commuting area and the cost of living is drastically less than MD, VA, and PA that is why the area is EXPLODING, and they have a summit where the only constructive thing they can come up with is the same increase in a fire fee that was deemed unlawful last time. Common sense is truly an endangered species. TAX the new construction, if people don't want to pay it, fine then we don't need the rain tax, increased fire fees, bigger roads more school etc. They will still come because their money goes way farther here than neighboring states. My question is why in a room full of so called leaders are there NEVER any new out of the box ideas?
Looks to me that this is a case of excessive force. I'd like for the police body cam videos to be released so we can see what exactly happened. Not what "allegedly" happened. The way this story reads, the police were called to "escort" him from the property, and that he was creating space by walking away. WALKING AWAY, as in leaving the property.
Probably should just have complied with officers directives.

We're in the middle of a drought so what storm/rain water are they taxing? We don't have collection sewers so I really don't understand this. If i remember my science correctly, water is a non renewable resource. We can't make it. It rains, water evaporates, clouds form, water falls back to earth. Guess we'll keep paying tax on the same water.
I'm pretty sure none of the ones that are on the county council will ever have to worry about me voting for them. This lasted a year in Maryland if I recall correctly. Wonder if any of our future Governors and legislators will have the opportunity to have this little problem removed from the books.
What's the money going to be used for? And I have a well and septic tank. This is crazy
WOW, all of this was EXTREMELY misleading. As I read what was sent to me in letter AND what I listened to on radio, I would not see this liberal wacko "rain tax" since our house has septic and a well. Another tax on the people, clean water act what a freaking farse.
The last 6 months we have seen the assessor driving around, they stopped here 3 times within that period......apparently they had this in the scope for awhile.....
They call almost everything a FEE so it sounds better. Always hammering the Taxpayer without any real process, but can't enact FEES on developers and Large Businesses without zoning. Time to change that law and put the burden on the developers.
Seems to me that in order to tax it, Berkeley County has taken ownership of the rain. Therefore, the council shall be liable for any damages caused by said rain within the county 🤷♂️
Without planning - there will be flooding on rt9W and other developing areas, but that should be on the developers - NOT the tax payers! That is still a s-ton of money, all homes considered, that we may as well have thrown straight into the tributaries.
wow tax us more what about builders and every tax payer going have say were what gets build?

Berkeley Heights Elementary School currently has around 850-900 students, do you really think they can handle more students? High schools have about 1,200+ so it’s not smart planning to add that many more students to BHE. Same thing going on in the Falling Waters/ Spring Mills area. Potomack currently has 900 + students and the extensive construction is exploding on that end of BC. Zoning and impact fees are necessary so our school system can keep up with the number of students moving into this part of WV. These planning commissioners aren’t planning they are rubber stamping and we are paying the price.
The Journal story is seriously deficient in not reporting the discussion of the proximity of the cement plant to this proposed development. I think that was, and should have been, the primary factor in the decision. The traffic issue is important but not as important to the question of zoning. Typically zoning buffers residential areas from industrial properties, which is why this parcel had been zoned commercial in the first place.
Martinsburg planning commission hasn’t kept up with changes in the past or or plan for future expansion that this area would naturally grow due to the proximity to Washington DC and Baltimore. The city and county commission and building arborist dropped tha ball years ago. Most of these problems could could have been solved years ago a little at a time each year. Now that cost for infrastructure improvements are getting expensive or profit I’ve in some cases.
RIP country roads.

we need more schools not more houses if you ask me! Thats just my opinion tho.
Apartment buildings,near a quarry/cement plant- definitely not a prime location. You KNOW it would have been (or become) a section 8 dump anyway..

Used to live in the city limits and used Martinsburg City Water and Sewer. Bill averaged about 110.00 every two months. Moved outside city limits and had to change to Berkeley County Public Water/Sewer. Bill averages 125.00 EVERY MONTH...it is insane
Why should only public water/sewer customers be forced to cover this? As stormwater runoff happens all over the county every county citizen should have to pay. The bigger question is though, if the county council unilaterally voted to join this MS4 program and couldn't manage properly, then maybe the council members should pay the fines out of their own pockets. Why should the citizens of this county be forced to pay for their negligence?
Thanks to those who attended!!
This fee is just plain crookeryfrom the Government. They allowed over building and over urbanization and now we as citizens have to suck it up these officials are clueless in the engineering and development world thus are clueless when allowing poor designs which cause excessive runoff and flooding to the communities. People need to stand their ground and if the local officials refuse to bend and comply with the citizenry then the citizens need to out them and replace them as is our right to do. Either they support their constituents or they get the boot. They work for you people you pay them. You FIRE them
Yay, even MORE money out of my pocket.
We can't afford more fees. I have well and septic. Why should I have to pay fees?
What happened to the $42 million increase they collected 2 years ago for the supposed Bay upgrades? I see they all have new vehicles though
Go into effect immediately if no action taken,,,,amazing that fees on the average citizen can be enacted with or without action, but impact fees on the developers can't be enacted without zoning.
Shame on those who encouraged all this Urbanization without developer Fees.
Crazy isn’t it how much power they think they have! The fee like so many others are ridiculous!
Just another fee people will not pay just like the fire and ambulance fee
EPA has resorted to legalized theft. Big shocker!
They let these big developers develop all over the county , they are the ones who should have been paying for this all along.....now they are trying to pass it off to the taxpayers!!!
Yeah I did ... we are in a good league ... I feel bad for the Berk.Spring and Martinsburg Kids that don’t get to finish this year 😢
So sad! A true reflection of today’s society!!!!!
volunteer or paid employees no officiant deserves the abuse. The mental stress of making on the spot calls is hard enough without being harassed. Way to make a statement about respect and standing by the ones that need to be respected the most.
Let’s all hope and pray the TCYFL and and the EPOA can work things out...ban the troublemakers (and I’m sure they can identify the coaches at least) and let the kids finish the football and cheerleading season!!
This doesn’t just happen in football it’s in all sports. A lot of kids (and I mean kids under the age of 18 that think they are adults and parents allowing them to think this way) Parents allowing these young people to disrespect their coaches and also parents that act like they can tell the coaches what to do. Excuse me if you can do a better job coaching why didn’t you go out for the job. People teach your kids some respect, it doesn’t cost anything and means a lot.
So sad.. this effects the little ones, and there are no other words how I feel
A sign of the times!
Proof that a few bad apples spoil the bunch so many parents are lazy have no respect for others and are setting a bad example not only for their kids but others whom they are around y'all should be Ashamed
Two of my sons played and the referring was always terrible. These guys were even paid to do it.
It’s ironic all the talk and memes about millennials (and younger) being the snowflakes and all when in fact it’s their parents who are the reason we are where we are. 😂. If you plant ice you gonna harvest wind!
GOOD for Doug. If the players and parents can't behave in a civil manner then the league should be shut down. Maybe some training on appropriate behavior will help if anything moves forward in the future.
With the JCYFL part, I saw quite a bit of it. One of the coaches was even convicted of assault. Ridiculous. And it's all over the country, not just here.
Morals, values..and respect start at home...children act the way they are allowed to act when they learn this from their own parents....all players should not be punished because they dont wanna deal with a few bad apples in the bunch...sometimes you have to just have them removed and try to keep the other players in the game. I guarantee u start throwing parents and players off the property you will see a big difference in the ones who see this kind of discipline being shown to adults then players will straighten up.
More power to them! Can’t respect the refs and can’t respect the game then you don’t deserve to play. 🤷♀️
Parents all deserve refunds!!!!!!!!
Wrong call! Don't take an ounce of abuse, of course. Implement a strict, zero tolerance policy evicting & banning anyone (including coaches) who crosses that line, instead of punishing children for the crimes of their childish parents.
Simple resolution - Pay the officials the same as college or NFL officials and then you can yell all you want.
It's probably a good thing they shut it down before some angry parent or coach pulled out their legally carried gun and shot someone or many! I saw on another thread that this has happened in other areas of the country. It's sad that everyone has to suffer because of the actions of some, but sadly this is what this country has come to now
What a shame. These people drive with those same hostile attitudes. Our area has changed so much.
Why not have security at each game, the officials eject coaches, player and people in the stands for unruly conduct!! Don’t punish the whole league for a handful of disrespectful people!
Good for them!! Poor parenting is the reason kids are so disrespectful nowadays.....children become a reflection of their parents and if the parents can not handle themselves with a little class and dignity then they dont deserve to be a part of it....it's a damn shame really....let's let kids get back to being kids again
What's even more sad about the situation is the meeting with parents to discuss this that basically said it's ok they are just threatening and they will change their minds so be ready to play Saturday!!!! So not only are you disrespectful and can't act right then you mock them and take this as a joke! The entire league is insane and I've sat at many games and listened to the kids after games talking about "the ref didn't see it so I'll keep doing it til they catch me" when it comes to playing dirty, the same kids (whos last names usually match names on the coaches shirts) play the entire game with no breaks while half the team sits on the bench the entire game. It's sad. We need to do better.

I’d love to stop having to say “what?” 15 times in a row before finally giving up!
Wonderful to read! Thanks for covering this topic.

If you actually take a minute to read the article, you will see the efforts by state and local development officials are paying off. They're doing their jobs. This is an exciting opportunity for our area in the future. I wish them nothing but great success here. Great job to our development officials! I won't be one of the abundant naysayers within our community who will be plentiful and have served to take our state to the bottom for too long. I welcome progress and investment with open arms.
We are honored and moved to be welcomed with such kindness! We can definitely say we feel surrounded by friends and we hope to grow and contribute to the local development.
