MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A Howard High School teen claims one of the school’s coaches is discriminating against him.

Myles Hunter said the coach told him he can’t be on the team because “he doesn’t accept kids from group homes” and it was too late for him to join the team last year. Hunter also claims boys on the team said racial slurs to him. Hunter’s family filed a complaint with the Bibb County School Board.
