A high school track and field coach in New Hampshire claimed he lost his job recently after he refused to enforce the school’s outdoor mask mandate, which he described as “senseless, irrational, cowardice bullsh*t.”
Bradley Keyes, who coached at Pembroke Academy in Pembroke, New Hampshire, for four years, explained his rationale in a letter to the school’s athletics director (that he also posted on a blog), according to local CBS affiliate WBZ.
“I will not stand up in front of the kids and lie to them and tell them that these masks are doing anything worthwhile out in an open field with wind blowing and the sun shining,” Keyes wrote regarding the guidelines set by the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association.
“These insane policies are robbing kids of once in a lifetime opportunities for no valid reason other than irrational fears and going along with the sheep,” he added.
Keyes concluded his letter by urging the athletics director to fire him “if you must,”
