“I’ll have to penalize you for that one, Trevor,” the coach said. “No matter how just the action, I can’t let it pass.”
Trevor expected the penalty, but he couldn’t let what Johnson did go unpunished.
Johnson was always picking on Brian, Trevor’s cousin, who happened to be gay. Earlier, Brian had stood up after a particularly hard hit and rubbed his backside. Johnson yelled, “guess your boyfriend was a little too rough last night,” and doubled over laughing. It was the final straw for Trevor.
He rushed over to Johnson and kicked him square in his generous ass, knocking the larger boy head over tails. Trevor thought the small smile on Brian’s face was more than worth any penalty the coach dished out.
