How is This Legal? GA HS Hoops Coach Plays Defense


Savannah (GA) Johnson High coach Utaff Gordon felt his team needed some added defensive edge. In a playoff game against Greater Atlanta Christian, he became a sixth defender by jumping up and down on the sideline during an inbound play. As long as Gordon stayed in his box, he could do whatever antics he wanted. 

Gordon, 62, stepped down after 30 years of coaching following Savannah Johnson's Class 3A quarterfinals loss.
