Did pee-wee coach pay for big hits?

NEED TO KNOW
  • Former asst. coach said team offered cash to kids for big hits
  • Some parents, players confirm payouts
  • Coach says allegations are nonsense

The coach of a pee-wee football team in Tustin, California is accused of running his own bounty program.  Parents and players say kids were paid for big hits on other teams! 

These allegations come months before the alleged acts of the New Orleans Saints came to light. 

The local conference initially investigated the claims and called them unfounded or overstated and league officials all deny the allegations, but late Thursday the national Pop Warner organization suspended the coach and the Tustin league president as they investigate.
