Man impersonates Martin coach to scam donations

He wears Martin High School colors.

People say he looks like a football coach.

He tells people he's Coach Robert Wager, a Martin High School football coach.

He's a fraud, James Purdy, a member of the Martin High School Football Booster Club finance committee, said today.

"When we went by some of our annual contributors to get a donation, they told us that Coach Wager had already been through," Purdy said. "He may have scammed people out of between $2,000 and $5,000."

Purdy said Martin boosters want supporters to know that school coaches never solicit donations.
