A local Atlantic County Junior Football League player has quit the team because he was told he could not wear pink gloves to honor his mother who is a breast cancer survivor. 

Julian Connerton, 12 is a Egg Harbor City resident and member of the Egg Harbor City Crusaders football team was told he could not play in the game against the Ocean City Junior Raiders if he wore the pink gloves.

That prompted Julian to quit the team.

According to The Press of Atlantic City: Louis Barrios, a member of the Crusaders Youth Athletic League Association’s board of directors, said Julian’s coach, Paul Burgan, did not realize why Julian was wearing pink gloves.

So should the football coach be asked to step down? (Comment below)
