Parents and children showed up Monday for soccer practice and found offensive graffiti at the Sherman Soccer Complex in Gateway.

People were distraught and disappointed at the thought of someone coming out and writing the remarks for everyone to see.

Robert Vertrees uses the field to practice and shared some thoughts with WINK News.

“You can do better; you can be better. and so, you know, if, if they are fortunate enough to catch the person that did it off the security cameras, make them come out here and you know, put in some work and clean it up,” Vertrees said.

WINK News reached out to the Gateway services community development district’s park and recreation about what happened but didn’t get a response.
