Bross said Wardle ignored his pleas for a break after he’d begun to feel sick, which eventually resulted in the former player losing control of his bowels.
“Coach Wardle told me to stop being a p—- and to go into the woods,” Bross told the Press Gazette, adding that he went in the woods and defecated. “I came back and he was like, ‘Are you all done? Are you OK? Are you done being a p—- now, Ryan?’ because they thought I was faking it, but I wasn’t. So I kept running the hills. I finished one hill. I came back down, and I told them I was not feeling well again, and (Wardle) made me run another hill again because he told me that I was being a baby and that I was letting down the team and I was letting down myself, and that I was letting down everyone.”
Bross continued: “I got down to the bottom (of the hill), and Wardle told me I was a piece of s— and that he had never seen such a big p—- in his life and that I was the biggest piece of s— he had ever seen.”
