Arizona Sports Reporters Banned For Inappropriate Messages To Students

This came to us from our friends at Larry Brown Sports…Jeff and Zach Edgington, 31, are accused of sending inappropriate messages to many high school students they were covering, including asking questions like whether the students had significant others. They are also accused of soliciting photographs — including bikini shots — from some of the athletes, and commenting on their bodies/appearance. The twin brothers were credentialed as freelance reporters for a scorekeeping app called “ScoreStream” for at least some of the events they covered. According to 12 News in Phoenix, one of the brothers targeted girls with his solicitations, while the other targeted boys. The Arizona Interscholastic Association acted in response to Amsden’s tweets and said they were banning the Edgingtons from covering events. They also advised schools to keep the twins from attending events as spectators. – TO
