This a true story about the worst high school paddling I ever received.

In the rural Tennessee school system that I attended, the teachers used the paddle to keep unruly students in line. I was paddled at school a few times during each grade, but the worst was by far the last one I got my senior year.

I was on the football team and we had used one of the school buses to travel to a neighboring town to play on Friday night. After the game several of us boys were chewing tobacco in the back of the bus on the way home. Well, one of the spit cups were left on the bus and had spilled making a big mess that the bus driver had had to clean up. The bus driver, an older black lady, wasn't happy at all about it at all and let our head coach know it Monday morning.

During the day, the coach made it around to each class and called members of the football team out in the hall to ask them if they were using tobacco on the bus. Using chewing or dipping snuff wasn't a rare thing for school age boys and the coach pretty much knew who did and who did not chew tobacco. He didn't say anything about punishment when he asked us, but in my mind we were going to have to run some extra sprints or something like that for admitting to the infraction. By the end of the day the coach had a list of around 10 boys who had admitted guilt.

Much to our surprise, when we entered the locker room after 6th period to get ready for practice, we knew we were in serious trouble. The coach's desk had been pulled into the middle of the open area of the locker room and standing on one side of it was the coach and on the other side was the bus driver. They were both holding long wooden paddles....

Not a word was spoken until the whole team had made our way into the locker room. One by one, coach began reading names from his list. He ordered every one who had been called to change from our school clothes into our jock straps and football practice pants. These pants were very thin and very tight fitting and would not offer any protection from those paddle swats!

Once we had changed, the 10 of us lined up in front of the desk with the whole rest of the team watching and listened to both the coach and the bus driver lecture us on our wrong doings and how they expected us to act in the future. Once the lecture was over, the coach ordered us into a single file line from youngest to oldest. The first in line would bend over the desk, hold on to the other side of it and take three swats from the lady bus driver. Once those first three swats were given, you were to go to the back of the line. When you got back to the front again you would get three more swats from the coach!

Pop! Pop! Pop! Each got 3 until it was my turn. I bent over the desk. For an older lady, she could swing a paddle! She swung the long paddle with both hands, lighting my butt on fire with each blow. Those three licks were probably as painful of a school paddling as I had gotten by whole school career.

As I watched the others take their three from the coach, I knew this was going to be bad. He was striking hard! It sounded like a rifle cracking with each swing. Each player would howl with pain as each blow cracked on their behind. Finally it was my turn. I bent over the desk, my butt still on fire from the first round, and gritted my teeth and waited. CRACK! I felt like the paddle lifted me several inches off the ground as it made contact. The paddle stung like a hundred yellow jackets had stung my behind at once! I let out a yelp and braced myself for the next one, but instead the coach started lecturing me again about being a team captain and I should be held to a high standard. I don't really remember what exactly he said because of the searing pain across my backside. He lectured until the sting had just started to die off a little and connected with the 2nd blow. I thought I would loose my mind as it took all I had not to bust out crying. Once again he let the burning linger for what seemed like an eternity before delievering the final blow. CRACK! With this pop I went into full spanking dance, jumping around and rubbing my butt. With tears in my eyes, we were ordered to line up and drop our pants just enough to bear our blistered behinds to the rest of the team and the bus driver. Coach said let that be a reminder to all of us not to screw up on his watch!

I never chewed tobacco on the school bus again and I also didn't allow any of my team mates to either!

Your story is similar to how our coaches in junior high and high school handled our behavior in PE and team sports. I played football too and getting swats was routine for us at practice and in the locker room. We got swats as punishment and we got swats to motivate us to play better.

I don't remember a group of boys as large as 10 getting in trouble at one time but it wasn't unusual for several of us to get paddled at a time. Sometimes it was for getting in trouble together. Other times we hadn't gotten in trouble together but we had gotten detention for whatever we had done separately in our classes and we missed practice because we were in detention after school. Missing practice unexcused was a paddling offense that usually happened at the next team practice. So on a team of 30 boys, it wasn't usual for one or more of us to have gotten detention at least once a week.

We always knew we were in trouble anyway so dreaded going to the next football practice. We all changed into our uniforms and assembled on the practice field for roll call and calisthenics. The paddling happened at roll call and before the calisthenics. Any boy who had missed the previous practice had to explain why he had. If he had been sick or had a good excuse, he had to have a parent or teacher note. If we had detention, then the coach called us to come up front. We were told to bend over and grab our ankles while facing the rest of the team who were lined up in rows. Then the coach would give each of us four hard swats. I'm not sure why it was four other than it was three for missing practice and one for letting the team down by missing practice. Then we were told to get up and get back in our row for calisthenics. Which was better than having to practice immediately with a burning butt. Those swats were really hard and our football pants with only a jockstrap underneath were really thin. By the time we hit the showers at the end of practice, our butts were usually still red and beginning to bruise. The only good part was that these paddling weren't officially reported to our parents unless the coach was pissed at us for missing several practices by getting detention. Then I know the coach would call those dads and those kids probably got another paddling or spanking when they got home. I know first hand about that too.

So tell us about the paddling you got when you got home. Did your parent take it a bit more easy since you had just been paddled by the coach?

Just the opposite. The worst spanking I ever received from our Dad was when I had gotten in trouble in PE class and had gotten paddled there. The PE coach was pissed at me and another boy so he not only paddled both of us hard, he called our dads.

I didn't know he was going to do that so was surprised when I got home from school and our Mom told me that Dad had called her after the coach called him at work. She told me I was in real trouble with Dad and to go to my room to wait for him to come home and punish me. I knew what that meant as I was 14 or 15 and the routine in our home for getting in trouble and being sent to our room to wait for Dad meant only one thing. I went to our bedroom which my brothers and I shared and stripped down to my briefs to wait for Dad to come home. I remember that he came home early from work to deal with me so I didn't have to wait as long as I usually did.

Dad came home and I knew he was home because I heard his car and him slamming the door. I thought that was not good and was terrified but all I could do was wait for him to come in. I guess he and Mom talked about what I had done although not for long because he soon came into our bedroom and had both of my brothers with him. That was unusual because we were usually punished privately unless we had gotten in trouble together. He didn't have much to say other than that coach had called him and told him what I did and that he wanted to make sure that I did not screw around in coach's PE class again. He had a belt in his hand, which was bad news because he usually paddled us with a wooden paddle like they had at school. With a belt, he always strapped us longer than just a few paddle swats.

Dad told me to drop my underpants and bend over the bed. Then he strapped me hard on my bare butt for what my brother said later was 20 swats. I wasn't counting but his strapping went on forever because he went slower than usual and spaced out each stroke of his belt. My brothers sat there and watched me get spanked harder than I ever had before that. Needless to say, my butt was bright red and it was impossible to sit. After Dad was done, he told me I could stand up and that I was grounded to our room for the rest of the day and evening. My brothers left the room when Dad did as it was dinner time. I remember just laying face down on my bed crying and thinking that my butt was completely scorched. Mom brought a sandwich to me after dinner and I still hadn't dressed when she came in with it.

The next day, my butt still looked it had been scorched and everybody in PE class saw it and knew what happened. The coach also saw it when I showered and looked pleased that I had gotten a thorough spanking at home after his paddling at school.

In middle school we had football after school, 4 teams made up of 7th & 8th graders that played each other every weekend. I was in 7th grade, the baddest 100 lb. linebacker in history & I knew it. My attitude apparently started to come through a bit too much at home and my mother would advise me I was on "thin ice" a few times. My parents came to a game one weekend & we were getting whomped. I came off the field after giving up another touchdown & I threw my helmet down in disgust. My mother came over & said, "We don't throw equipment Mister, don't think i won't pull your pants down & spank you right here !" Heads snapped around & all eyes were then on me. I put my helmet back on & slunk down the other end of the bench as far from my mom as I could get.

Peter, the penalty for throwing a helmet at a football game in middle school wouldn't have required a parent coming out of the stands. Our coaches would have dealt with that behavior by paddling us in the locker room after the game or at the next practice. Playing on school teams was the same as being in school so corporal punishment was used on us no different than if we misbehaved in class.

For teams that were not part of the school like Pop Warner or Little League, our parents would deal with us misbehaving rather than the coaches who might be school coaches or other parents. I remember one boy in Little League who got spanked behind the dugout by his dad during a game so the threat of what would happen to us if we acted up in public were always there. That boy came back into the dugout teary eyed and wasn't sitting comfortably for the rest of that game. We didn't see it but could hear the spanking through the wood dugout wall. No one had any doubt what was about to happen when his dad appeared in the dugout after the boy threw a bat when he struck out. For a group of 11 or 12 years old, the idea of being taken out behind the dugout and getting a pants down spanking was enough to keep the rest of us in line for the rest of that season.

This brought back a memory from soccer when I was in Germany. It was during one of the games we played against a local German team. In the first few years they took us to the cleaners.

Most of us found these games a good opportunity to taunt the other team with any German profanity we had learned. Usually no-one except the other player heard it and it was normal stuff between kids. During one game the coach on the other team overheard one of our boys and called him out on it during half-time.

While we were drinking gatorade and eating orange slices, the boy, our coach, their coach, and his parents were discussing his conduct. They were about 10 to 15 fifteen feet from us so we heard most of it. He probably would have gotten through the issue but his parents had his little sister in tow. At one point he denied he even knew any german profanity. His sister boldly told everyone he was lying and that she heard him use that language often. He responded by punching her in the arm. It wasn't a love tap either.

The next thing anyone knew his dad was dragging him to the car while his mother and sister followed. His dad was whacking his backside the whole way and promising him a lot more when they got home. He down played it at the next practice but we all knew he got it good.

I remember a few other times when boys got spanked privately by the coach but everyone knew about it.

That had to be embarrassing, although in Little League we were required to wear jockstraps with cups so if that was true for you, then you weren't totally bare getting spanked at the game. Unless your dad took you off somewhere away from the crowd to spank you.

With the boy on our team who got spanked behind the dugout, none of us saw the spanking but it wasn't hard to imagine that his dad took his baseball pants down and strapped him with his belt. That's what it sounded like through the dugout wall. None of us asked our teammate when he came back into the dugout what happened. We knew because that is what would have happened to most of us if we did what he did. Our dad was at most of our Little League games since my brothers played too. He might have waited until we got home to spank us as he usually did that. Mom and Dad didn't seem to be as big on spanking in public as some parents were. But that didn't mean that we didn't worry about getting spanked in public when we were younger. Never would have happened when we were older but up to maybe 10 or 11 years old things were handled differently.

David: I was on the sidelines not on the field when I tossed my helmet down, this was middle school ball & the parents were milling around on the sidelines with us, it was a long ways from the varsity with marching bands & night games.
Little League was another matter. I remember I called out on a ball a foot outside to end a game. The umpire was the dad of one of the other teams kids & he was standing behind the pitcher calling balls & strikes. I exploded, throwing the bat & my batting helmet. Before I knew it my bare fanny was in the air over my dads' knee getting peppered.

My daughter and the middle school wing cheerleaders got in trouble for misbehaving on the tbe bus home from cheering at a girls volleyball game. Our school uses a small strap the next day they all had to get 7 licks with the strap . All the parents chose the hands to be strapped. The principal strapped them in the conference room in the office due to thuer being 12 girls.

My middle school volleyball coach had a paddle hanging in the locker room. I never saw her paddle anyone. But my cousin said that same coach paddles people like crazy a few years before when she played volleyball.

Did all the guys seem to have tears in their eyes? Were there comments from others in the team about the displayed row of red butts? Did you get more at home due to getting paddled at school?

And changing into jock straps and football pants gave each player's butt the same level of protection from the paddle (e.g. in reality, none)...
