What is more synonymous with winning a championship in football than a gatorade bath. Apparently it’s not for everyone.
Completing an undefeated season, St. Thomas Aquinas High School’s football team won their first state championship this weekend under head coach Randy Dreiling, but the joy lasted all but a few seconds.
With the numbers on the clock approaching zero, Dreiling’s players ran towards him with a half-full cooler of Powerade, dumping it on their coach – only to be charged at and pushed.

To say @STAsaints coach Randy Dreiling isn’t a fan of the ice bath would be putting it mildly. Have shot high school football for 20 years and have never seen anything like this. Saints win their first state title over Wichita Northwest 49-28. #vkscores. @HK_Barber pic.twitter.com/ZduYx0CVgD

The coach explained he wasn’t the biggest fan of Gatorade showers in a postgame interview.
