DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities have arrested nine people, including several coaches, they say were gambling on youth football games and setting point spreads.
Broward Sheriff's officials searched two alleged gambling houses Monday where they say people were betting on professional, college and youth games.
The nine men arrested were charged with bookmaking and some with keeping a gambling house. Authorities say the suspects had direct ties to the South Florida Youth Football League and several have extensive criminal histories.
According to the league's website, it has 22 clubs and 6,000 children of all ages in three counties.
Brandon Bivins, coach and president of the Fort Lauderdale Hurricanes, was among those charged. He's being held on $50,000 bond. It's unclear if Bivins had an attorney.
