To the Ohio Legends Football Team
I understand there is a lot of rumors running around out there from some of the recent changes. I just wanted to offer some clarification to the team. Coach Jackson informed me that he would be offering Phil the Head Coach position several weeks before the end of our season. It was brought to our attention after this that there were several key players that would not commit if Coach Jackson came back in any coaching position next season. After sitting down with Coach Jackson he voluntarily stepped down for the betterment of the team. After much discussion he agreed that it was best for the team and he would rather put his effort into his ministry which was the reason he had gotten involved in the first place. The Ohio Legends is still here and I can honestly say we are here to stay. We have committed to Florida in January and will also be having try-outs in November. I hope to see all of you next season and please fell free to text or call me if you have any questions or concerns (330)472-7423. See you and your wives, girlfriends, mistresses', baby mothers', etc at the banquet November 29th. ZOOOOOOO!
