AN EXCLUSIVE BIG VALLEY NEWS EDITORIAL

Last year Big Valley News wrote a series of stories on former head coach Scott McKinney's final year with the football program. The year started with a scrimmage which degenerated into a riot involving recent Madera High players and possibly current players. Questions stand to this day about the participants because the administration refused to share the game video of the melee claiming it was classified as 'student records'.
