Roosevelt, Utah -

The head football coach at Union High in Roosevelt, Utah suspended his entire varsity team because of bullying and a lack of respect from the players.

Head coach Matt Labrum says coaches on the football team received complaints about their players for things like bullying, disrespect and poor grades.

Team captain Zach Roll said he should have done more to prevent the bad behavior.

The Union High game this week is a big one. It could determine whether the Cougars will make the playoffs, but the team hasn't practiced at all this

week. Instead of practice the team did community service.

Labrum said he expects the bleachers to be full on game night, and he doesn't want to keep his guys from playing in their homecoming game?but there are a few things his players need to do before they put their jerseys back on.

So far this week, the team has volunteered at two rest homes and worked to improve their grades in addition to doing community service.

Labrum said he's got a team of good boys, but he said he is trying to make them into better men. Roll said that lesson is sinking in.
