Mother walks out after WR recruit Jacob Copeland picks Florida

Jacob Copeland mom

The mother of a high school football recruit walked out of her son’s televised announcement on Wednesday after he chose a school that was not to her liking.

Four-star wide receiver Jacob Copeland was choosing between three schools: Alabama, Florida and Tennessee. His mother sitting beside him was wearing an Alabama sweatshirt and Tennessee hat. She had a 66 percent chance of being happy. Instead, Copeland chose the Gators.

This was not an easy decision for Copeland.

When players choose between schools there are bound to be hurt feelings. It’s just not that often that you see a parent so upset by a child’s decision, though we’ve seen it happen twice before to the same mom.
