Letter: Cade West and Cerritos College deserved better

Deaf/autistic athlete Cade West’s inspiration, guts and determination, and approach to the game of basketball with the heart of a champion, was absolutely heartwarming and heartwarming. The humanity of his beloved coach, Russ May, was commendable.

On the other hand, the blatant incompetence of the California Community College Athletic Association. It was surprising and infuriating.

I commend Mr. Plaschke for his clever article about Kade West playing for Cerritos College. Perhaps we need to redefine what victory really is and when a “seizure” is clearly worth it.

Heartbreaking read. Kudos to Russ Mays, his team and coach to true basketball star Cade West. For the CCCAA, “any fool can make a rule and any fool will oppose it.” (HD Thoro).

At least those 12 CCCAA board members should resign. And I thought I hated the NCAA.
