Bullying is Never Acceptable!

I read an article about an athlete named Mitchell Miller. Mitchell Miller was drafted by the National Hockey League team - the Arizona Coyotes. It soon came to light that back in Junior High School, Mitchell was charged with bullying a classmate with a developmental disability.

Once the report was released, the team relinquished the rights to Miller’s contract effective immediately. This article is a lesson to all young athletes that bullying is never acceptable and how your past actions can reflect your future. You can read more about this story by visiting here.
