Flowers Football started this petition to Give him his job back

Days before the start of the 2019 football season, Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) officials confirmed that Charles H. Flowers High School Head Football Coach Dameon Powell has been suspended for one year while three members of his coaching staff are under review after reports of his team participating in an illegal practice.

Local television outlet Fox 5 reported on Aug. 30 that Powell held an illegal practice at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia in early August. Following the trip, players received a questionnaire about their visit, which confused parents, according to the report.

Flowers will also forfeit one game this season as punishment for the illegal practice, according to PGCPS Spokesperson Raven Hill.

The Maryland Public Secondary Athletic Association (MPSSAA) rules handbook states that teams are not allowed to practice “beyond the parameters of the sports season.” By definition, teams can only practice from the first day of practice until the end of the state championships. This year, the first day of official practices was Aug. 14.
