18-Year-Old Football Player Kisses 65-Year-Old Boyfriend, Gets Kicked Off Team


A freshman football player at the North Dakota State College of Science feels discriminated against after he was kicked off the team following a kiss. Jamie Kuntz kissed his 65-year-old boyfriend in a press box.

A teammate saw the kiss and informed his coaches. When the 18-year-old lineman was questioned about the kiss, he lied and said he had kissed his grandfather.

The team released Kuntz, saying that he was being dismissed because he had violated the team’s manual which addresses “lying to coaches, teachers or other school staff.”

Coach Chuck Parsons wrote Kuntz: “This decision was arrived at solely on the basis of your conduct during the football game; and because you chose not to be truthful with me when I confronted you about whom else was in the box with you. Any conduct by any member of the program that would cause such a distraction during a game would warrant the same consequences.”

Kuntz has left North Dakota State College of Science, but hopes to play football somewhere else.

He claims to have met the older man online more than a year ago.

A support group for Kuntz has been formed on Facebook.
