Youth Football Coach’s Wife Pulls Gun on Armed Gang Beating Her Husband for Not Giving a Father’s Son Enough Playing Time

There apparently is a dark side to the everyone’s-a-winner, let-everyone-play mentality that has been festering in youth sports for years. When one father decided that his kid hadn’t been given enough playing time, he attacked the coach — but the coach’s gun-toting wife fought back.

A gun-wielding wife saved her football youth league football coach as he was attacked by a gang following a row with a father over his son’s practice time.

The incident occurred at about 7:45 p.m. Monday at Linwood Park in south Wichita.

The 37-year-old coach was confronted by a man who was angered by what he perceived as his son’s lack of time on the field.

The father showed off his handgun before five or six other men – including one with a knuckleduster began attacking the coach, reports The Wichita Eagle.

Seeing the attack, the coach’s wife pulled out a gun and fired it into the air.

At this point, according to Lt. James Espinoza, the coach managed to escape and ran to his car to get another gun.

His assailants fled before officers arrived and confiscated both guns.

This woman — and her gun — saved her husband’s life, as without that gun, the attack on her husband would surely have continued. And a lot of damage can be inflicted in the amount of time it takes for police to respond to a call, because as great as police officers are, they can’t be everywhere at once… which is why it’s our responsibility to be able to defend ourselves in the meantime.
