Teacher’s true colors definitely not orange, blue

`A die-hard Steelers fan and teacher at Beaver Falls High School made Vannoy, 17, take a midterm test on the floor because he was sporting a John Elway No. 7 jersey. The honors ethnic relations teacher had Vannoy sit in a circle of desks, then instructed his classmates to throw paper at him.

The treatment wasn’t part of any classroom lesson, his teacher says. He had warned students before not to wear another team’s jersey in his classroom.

“I was humiliated and shaking. I couldn’t finish my test,” said Vannoy, a Broncos fan even though he’s a native of Pittsburgh Steelers country.’
