How does a high school kid have a tattoo already?
Dominating first half secures 41-14 victory for Le Roy

Le Roy looked like a team with barely a weakness during the first half of Friday's 41-14 victory over Letchworth.
The Indians were held to minus two yards of total offense during the half and ran only 19 plays without notching a single first down.
The Oatkan Knights (3-0) had six possession in the half and scored five offensive TDs with a total offense of 248 yards.
The one glitch was a Mike McMullen interception when the Knights seemed to be marching toward another inevitable touchdown. It was McMullen's first interception of the season.
"I thought we played well," Head Coach Brian Moran said. "I though we did a lot of things well tonight. I thought our first team played extremely well. They got off the ball well. We just did a lot good things."
McMullen tossed three touchdown passes and had a total of 118 yards through the air on the night. He was 10-16 passing. Ryan McQuillen caught all three of the TD passes.
Peter Privitera gained 145 yards on 18 carries, scoring twice.
"Peter ran very well today," Moran said. "As you know, he came off the ankle surgery and tonight he showed the Peter of old. He started to get that speed back, and acceleration."
Tom Kelso carried the ball seven times for 42 yards and one TD. Nick Egeling ran for 45 yards on six carries. Kelso also caught three passes for 42 yards.
Jake Henry had six tackles and a sack. Chandler Winling, five tackles, and with four tackles each were Brandon Van Grol, McQuillen and Egeling. Anthony Paladino had two tackles and a sack.
Letchworth came into the game with a 1-1 record, with a 30-26 win over Warsaw and a 33-0 loss to Cal-Mum.
The Indians' only real offense came late in the game with two scoring drives against mainly second-team players. The Indians were also running more stunts and option plays, opening up the offense a bit.
Moran said this week the focus during team practice will be the play of the second team.
"You've got to pay a little more attention in practice and understand what we're trying to do and play a little better," Moran said. "Our expectation is that everybody improves on our team."
Next up for Le Roy, Warsaw, which is off to an 0-3 start on the season. Game time is 7:30 at Le Roy.

Also, last night, Pembroke (1-2) lost to Attica (3-0), 41-7. Attica's Matt Perry gained 288 yards on 17 carries, scoring six times. Perry is now the school career leader in TDs with 50 and total yards at 2,866.
Oakfield-Alabama (1-2) beat Finney (0-3) 61-0. Alan Chapp was 12-14 for 252 yards and two touchdowns, adding 72 yards on the ground. Chase Manzella gained 63 yards and scored three times. Chris Nanni added 31 yards on the ground and two TDs.
Today, two undefeated teams, Alexander and Notre Dame, clash at Notre Dame. Game time, 1:30. Elba/Byron-Bergen is at Holley.

Maybe he's 18 or maybe his parents signed a permission slip.
He also might have had fake proof that he was older than he really was OR his parents are as dumb as he is.. The apple never falls far from the tree so they say.. I have seen some very lovely women in my travels that think all their ink makes them look really sexxy & kewl. What they actually look like are fuglier with what they have injected into their bodies that will be with them for the rest of their life.. And then they also complain that corporate America won't hire them because their policy of tattoos on anyone deems that they not be hired if they are in the public eye. There was this wonderful male substitute teacher at Wayland-Cohocton high school that all the kids he taught loved, but one warm spring day he rolled up his shirt sleeves & was out of a job by that afternoon. NYS Education policy stated that no visible tattoos would be allowed on their teachers and/or other employees
Although the State Dept of Health drafted a law prohibiting the tattooing or piercing of children under-18 with or without parental permission, the law (as passed) permits under-age tattooing with the permission of parent or guardian. The law only applies to New York board-licensed tattoo and piercing shops. Tattooing outside the jurisdiction of the law (out-of-state, unlicensed, self-administered) would not be affected.
I've seen tattoos on children as young as 15. I'm sure there are children even younger who have tattoos.
As for the New York State Department of Education having regulations on tattoos, I am unaware of any. Dress Codes for faculty and staff are generally defined by the local school. The enforcement of Dress Code violations is largely dependent on the nature of the tattoo, the observational abilities of administrators, the indignation of the community and how desperate the school to be rid of the tattoo-wearing personnel.
If one 'Googles' TEACHER FIRED OVER TATTOO, the results include a teacher who's tattoo included male genitalia and a female who posted her tattoo online- which required baring her upper torso. One would assume that concerns over tattoos would impact the hiring of a teacher far more often than the firing of a teacher. As for tattoos on the non-teaching staff: what school lacks a tattooed custodian? My earliest school memory is the custodian showing all the kids in the cafeteria each knuckle tattooed with an individual letter spelling L-O-V-E.

Those are not the four letters I remember on the knuckles of the janitor at the school I went to. Those letters were typically what two people might do if they're in L O V E or in lust, but his other hand had "Y O U !" tattooed on those knuckles.
#36 is 18+,a great kid and star athlete..
Also I believe every kid on that team has had action in every game this year..Hats off to Moran for giving kids that practice all week long a chance to get out there and be a part of the fun!!..GO KNIGHTS!!!
Mr. Simmons, since Peter's dad isn't here to tell you to go f**k yourself (RIP Frank), I'll do it for him. His mother is a great person who is re-married to a good guy, so you statement about the apple sounds as stupid as your assumption. I'm with Howard, it's nobody's business if one has a tattoo or not. I personally don't have one, but it's not my job to dictate what others do with their body. Nor is it yours.
Hmm..I asked one question and it fired off a bunch of replies. I didn't know that kids in high school could get tattoos, that's why I asked. I thought for sure that people had to be 18 to get a tattoo, but now I know that's not the case. People at any age can get them from a state certified tattooist as long as a parent or legal guardian gives consent.
There are so many oddities in the law when a kid can get a tattoo with parental consent, but there are so many other things that they can't do.
I have tattoos, but I got them as an adult, so don't think that I have any prejudices against getting them. I've made the choice to have one removed and am considering having the other two removed. When a tattoo is 30 years old, it looks like it's 30 years old on a body that's 50 years old.
FIRST AND FOREMOST---Congratulations to LeRoy Football for a fabulous start to their season because this is what this article is truly about. I have been to every game thus far and these young men are dedicated athletes who work their butts off to bring home wins to their small town. As an alumnae of LeRoy who spent every year of my high school career cheering on the Men in Black, I am so proud of the traditions that are carried on in LeRoy. Coach Moran should be proud of his 25 years and should be proud of this years team.
NOW Let me speak my mind on the ignorance of people who rather than see the many accomplishments of these young men has to comment on a tattoo. I am a woman, mother and teacher. I have my Masters Degree in Education. I have taught in a rural district and in a city district. I have seen my fair share of tattoos on students, 18 and younger. These kids are in school, getting their education, becoming productive members of society. They have decided to ink their body in self expression. THAT IS THEIR BODY, THEIR DECISION!!!!! I have 6 tattoos myself. I have colleagues who also have tattoos. One beautiful thing about my students seeing my ink is that it sparks a discussion on the importance of going to a shop that follows rules, doesn't allow underage tattooing and that is clean. I can teach my students about the procedures and how to avoid a shop that could be harmful to their health. I have had parents thank me for having this conversation because their kid didn't want to listen to them.
DO NOT JUDGE A PERSON BASED ON APPEARANCES. This is another lesson I try to instill in my students. It's sad that we forget this as adults.
At the end of the day, #36 is a great athlete who has recovered from major surgery to come back to the field, to wear his Red, Black and White with pride. He and his fellow team members deserve CONGRATULATIONS on a great start to a great season. Keep it up boys. I will be at every game, cheering you on!!!
Man..all I did was ask a question!
By the way Mr. Simmons, where is this NYS Education policy on tattoos that you mention in your comments? I looked through the entire NYS Education Dep. and NYS Code and saw nothing in reference to this. I remember several stories on teachers being fired in the news and they were fired for either showing them off in an inappropriate way, or they were considered obscene because of their content ( ie showing genitalia or other inappropriate subject matter).
This is pretty much decided on the school district level on a case by case basis. And they have to tread carefully as it can come back to bite them in a discrimination lawsuit. Also I noted that in most cases the "teacher" fired was not a teacher but a substitute. This means that they dont have membership in the Teacher's Unions.
I would also comment on your comments on body art itself, but your own ignorance has shown through and others have addressed it sufficiently.
Unfortunately before anyone could answer your simple question, ignorance took over and people made very unnecessary comments. Comments that I digested for a bit before I could post without using vulgarity. I was so outraged, So to answer your simple question, they can legally get ink at 18. Apparently, they can also get permission.
I just don't understand the negativity for asking a question. I don't have kids, so I didn't know. I should have looked it up before asking. There are some touchy people on here.
Just remember Doug, there's no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid answers.
He also might have had fake proof that he was older than he really was OR his parents are as dumb as he is.. The apple never falls far from the tree so they say..
Who would say such a thing?But now a days looks like people that don't run the ball,Just run their mouths..I have no problem with the original question about a tat?
But leave your rotten apples comments to yourself..Geeze. you really don't even know.
BTW way my kid got 3 tackles,1 for loss , look out for #55 this week..These kids are so pumped to take back the title!!!
Are you in a time warp or something Doug? I went to school and had kids in my class with tattoos. My questions how does the military go from allowing some tattoos but not on the neck or head and no gang affiliation signs to allowing all three? When I went in 1990 they still did not allow neck, head or gang signs. I guess it is the current times. I have 5 myself and looking to get more.
Katherine, very true, "Let's Go LeRoy!"
