Grayson (Ga.) Players Stage Walkout to Protest Rough Conditions

Source: Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Christian Hunnicutt will remain Grayson’s head coach following a team boycott that took place on Wednesday, sources confirmed to Score Atlanta and the AJC’s Adam Krohn.

Initially, players demanded Hunnicutt’s ouster, according to a source. Nearly all of Grayson’s players protested Hunnicutt’s practice conditions, which involved full-force hitting in shorts, a source said.

Players walked out of practice on Wednesday, which led to a meeting between Hunnicutt and the players. During the meeting, Hunnicutt apologized for the rough practice conditions and promised lighter practices moving forward.

A text message left for Hunnicutt was not immediately returned.

Players were concerned for their health heading into the season, though none were injured as a result of the practices, according to one source.
