Any parent that reads this and sends their child to North Carolina Tech Prep Christian Academy is a FOOL. I first of all if anyone has seen him coach he is not a good coach. I do not see how he wins games. And he needs to realize he suppose to be a post college program not a college coach. He tells all of his players not to go running to your parents and tell them any thing cause I do not want to hear it. We live in Florida and this man cannot tell you when our child left North Carolina for home. All he wants is the money and for our child to be gone when he said for them to leave. I called EMAcademy and our son was not even finished with his classes, so how could he go home when Newman said for him to go home. THIS MAN DOES NOT CARE ABOUT CHILDREN, JUST MONEY!!

Oh I beg to differ, my nephew not too long came home from NC Tech. He had to live in a roach infested motel and live like a homeless person. Is that what you call Tim Newman looking out for the boys that go to that fake ass school. Give me break, they play games that don't count for beans and he puts make belive scores on the website to make it look official. Tim Newman and his staff are all going to burn in hell for the lies and problems he has caused and lives he has destroyed.
