OSG High: HSFB Coach Speaks Out On Racial Discrimination Lawsuit

((HT: WTVM-TV Columbus))

The HQ has covered Charles Flowers since his days at Shaw High School in Columbus, Georgia. In 21 years, most in west Georgia, he compiled a record of 161-82 with a state title in 2000 after a 15-0 run. He also had 2 semi-finals and 3 quarterfinals appearances as part of a seven-year run where he had double-digit wins each time at Shaw.

It was a powerful running game that got his teams there and Flowers is now trying to run head-first into an accusation given by his home school district.

He is charging the Troup (GA) County School Board with racial discrimination as the reasoning for his dismissal in concert with the notion that he paid a mother's rent to house her two sons in an apartment in his district even though they were reported to have lived across the border in the town of Lanett, Alabama.

Flowers is speaking out for the first time, GA News Weather

Troup is his alma mater and the Board of Education filed this reply:

"We are aware that there was a complaint filed in federal court on Friday, October 19, 2012. School officials will review the complaint once it has been served and file appropriate responses in court to all allegations. It is the practice of the Troup County School System not to comment on pending litigation."

Of course it is...
