Integrity of Record

High-school quarterback Nate Haasis will not be the Illinois’ Central Big Eight Conference record holder for single-season passing yards, but he is a hero of record. Haasis found out that his coach made a deal with the opposing team to stand down a play so he could get the record. Instead of keeping quiet, thereby keeping the record, Haasis petitioned the conference to remove him from the record books.

Integrity like this is pretty rare, so congratualtions to Haasis and shame on the coaches and players who took the dive.
