MALAD -- A southeast Idaho high school principal who decided to sell six decades worth of school sports trophies at a recent homecoming game is now trying to get them back after community members called foul.
Malad High School Principal John Crockett tells the Idaho State Journal that only a handful of trophies sold at the event.
Crockett says his goal was to connect the trophies with former team members and coaches rather than have them remain stored in boxes.
He says he requested a $5 donation so the trophies ended up with community members who had some connection to them.
But some in the community say Crockett sold out the school's heritage and put a price tag on something that is priceless to the athletes who won distinction.
