Girl football player sits out game after foe threatens forfeit

Jonathan Wall writing for Yahoo! Sports: “Like the rest of her Southampton (Va.) Academy teammates, Mina Johnson was supposed to be getting ready for a junior varsity football game on Thursday night against Lasker (N.C.) Northeast Academy…It all seemed to be going right for the eighth-grader — until she suddenly decided to sit out her team’s most recent game against Northeast. Why? It wasn’t due to injury. Rather, Johnson decided not to play in the game after the opposition threatened to forfeit if Johnson was allowed to play.”
