The Arena Football League is full of happy success stories. Kurt Warner. That weird video game that's oddly fun to play. Jon Bon Jovi. And now, to add to the list, the high school coaching adventures of Tom Porras, a former AFL quarterback. He was fired last week as track coach (and "personal trainer") at an Arizona high school for a certain incident involving a 17-year-old girl and a "massage," and, not surprisingly, that firing has now led to an indictment. The details:
Porras told her to put on her two-piece bathing suit, and led her to a loft where he asked her to sit on an exercise ball. He massaged her neck and shoulders then asked her to roll onto her stomach. He fondled her buttocks beneath her bathing suit. Porras kissed her neck, cheeks and buttocks, and told her that if she had questions about sex, he would answer them. She declined.
The girl told police she "felt uncomfortable, but didn't know what to do." She became alarmed when he ejaculated on her. He told her it was massage oil.
Uh ... yeah, that would probably alarm us too. He has admitted to the charges and, after serving his time, will surely find work as an analyst on ESPN AFL games.
