“Texas Wesleyan University has confirmed a controversial email sent by its longtime baseball coach to a potential recruit from Colorado.
The email was sent Feb. 20 by baseball coach Mike Jeffcoat from his university account and has since been posted on Twitter, where it has gone viral.
The message to the aspiring college athlete at Cherokee Trail High School states that Texas Wesleyan, a private school in Fort Worth, no longer recruits players from the state of Colorado because of drug problems.
"Thanks for the interest in our program. Unfortunately, we are not recruiting players from the state of Colorado. In the past, players have had trouble passing our drug test. We have made a decision to not take a chance on Student-athletes from your state. You can thank your liberal politicians. Best of Luck wherever you decide to play," Jeffcoat wrote in the email provided to Chron.com.”
