Tempe Coach Suspended For Praying With Players

The head football coach at Tempe Preparatory Academy, Tommy Brittain, is in the midst of serving a two-game suspension.

It's related to his participation in a team prayer led by his son Isiah. But the act of praying in and of itself--of bringing religion to the team--isn't the precise reason for the suspension. It's technically more administrative than that.

We talked about prayer and sports with Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic and Brett Honeycutt of Sports Spectrum magazine.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
