A high school basketball player in Ohio went from being lauded as a future college athlete to being denied a varsity letter. According to the teen’s family, the reason his basketball status suffered was because he had been identified as homosexual.
As reported by the Columbus Dispatch, among other sources, a Fairless (Ohio) High School basketball player — whose identity is currently being shielded — claims that now-former Fairless basketball coach and athletic director Kevin Bille repeatedly harassed and discriminated against the teen in question after he discovered he was gay.
Bille is just one of the defendants in the teen’s federal discrimination lawsuit, which seeks unspecified financial restitution for the emotional and psychological damage suffered at the hands of Bille and others at the school.
