Exeter Student Takes Coach to Court

Exeter Student Takes Coach to Court
November 29, 2023

A former Exeter High School athlete testified he was embarrassed after he was benched from playing a football game after stating his view there ‘are only two genders’ in a text message with a classmate.

The now 16-year-old student faced off with Bill Ball, the Exeter High School varsity football coach and athletic director, Tuesday in Rockingham Superior Court.

The school has denied the student was benched for his beliefs on gender, stating the one-game suspension was in response to using foul language and bullying in violation of the school’s Athletic Code of Conduct.
