Not too long ago, Holy Family basketball was in the news after video surfaced of coach John O’Connor shoving one of his players, Matt Kravchuk, to the ground.
Well the two met for the first time since the incident on “Good Morning America” today and it made for awesomely awkward television. First there was the part during the packaged story where O’Connor starts crying like a baby. That’s bad enough. But then there’s the part where the coach kind of apologizes but doesn’t take responsibility.
To Kravchuk’s credit, he didn’t accept:
“To be honest, it’s kind of hard to accept your apology, just because you claim it’s justified, you claim you weren’t crossing the line. … As your player I’m supposed to be able to respect you and I don’t feel I can do that anymore.”
