Player And Coach Suspended After Nazi Speech Airs At Game

A player and an assistant coach have been suspended after part of a Nazi speech was played over the public address system before a high school soccer game. The North Carolina High School Athletic Association also placed the boys' soccer team at Gastonia's Forestview High School on probation for a year. Sensitivity training has been ordered for the team. Gaston County Superintendent Reeves McGlohon says soccer players can't participate in school athletics unless the training is completed. The segment was taken from a speech by Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and contained the team's slogan, "On to Victory."
