High school hoops coach told to stop hypnotizing team

ST. JOHN, Kan. (AP) A high school basketball coach has been told he can't hypnotize his players anymore because it sends the wrong message to other schools and could get the students hooked on hypnosis.
The St. John High School boys team the same team that won state two years ago and finished second last year was just 7-6 through last week when coach Clint Kinnamon decided to bring in a hypnotist.

He chose Carl Feril, a Church of Christ minister who also is a clinical family and marriage therapist.

Letters were sent to parents asking them to sign permission slips for their sons to participate in the hypnosis sessions. One of those parents was school board member Mitch Minnis, who signed the slip.

"My son says, 'Dad, it's pretty cool. It's hypnotism!' We saw it as more of helping the kids with focus and concentration," he said. "Ninety-nine percent of the boys bought into it."
