"I never had any incident while I was coaching where I pushed my faith on any of my kids."
JACLYN STEELE SAYS FOR TWO YEARS SHE CHEERED UNDER BRASWELL, AND SHE FELT ISOLATED BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T PARTICIPATE IN BIBLE STUDIES AND PRE-GAME PRAYERS.
"It took us a couple of years for us to decide...ok Jackie...you've got a choice. You can either put up with it some more...or you make a stand. And Jackie decided to make a stand."
A UNIVERSITY INVESTIGATION CONCLUDED BRASWELL HAD BREACHED THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE... BUT DID NOT DIRECTLY ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF DISCRIMINATION.
OFFICIALS SAY THEY PLACED BRASWELL ON 12 MONTHS PROBATION AND QUOTE... "PROHIBITED RELIGIOUS OVERTONES IN THE CHEERLEADING PROGRAM"
MEANWHILE, THE SCHOOL OFFERED STEELE A FOURTH YEAR ON THE SQUAD... DESPITE A SCHOOL POLICY THAT LIMITS STUDENTS TO ONLY THREE YEARS.
ON THE FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE THE COACH PUBLICLY ANNOUNCED THAT STEELE -- NOW A SENIOR -- HAD FILED A FORMAL COMPLAINT AGAINST HER AND ADDED, QUOTE, "THE U-G-A ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT MANDATED THAT JACLYN BE PLACED, WITHOUT HAVING TO TRY OUT, ON THIS SQUAD."...
BRASWELL WAS SUBSEQUENTLY FIRED FOR DISCOURTEOUS AND DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR. SOME SAY THE COACH'S STATEMENT WAS RETALIATION.
NOT EVERYONE AGREES WITH THE UNIVERSITY'S DECISION.
"To keep from offending certain people, it's kind of taken away from our own religious practices."
THE UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA FOOTBALL TEAM WILL PLAY ITS FIRST GAME LABOR DAY WEEKEND...AND JACKIE STEELE WILL BE PART OF THE CHEERING SQUAD.
AS FOR MARILOU BRASWELL, SHE'LL BE APPEALING THE DECISION.
