Texas school district suspends 2 from school after ref hit
MARBLE FALLS, Texas - A San Antonio school district has suspended two football players from the team and from school after one of them ran into the back of a referee watching a play and the other dove into the official.
The district's athletic director Stan Laing told The Associated Press Monday that the students were suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of an investigation and due process hearing.
Video showed the referee watching the play, and his head snapping back when he is leveled from behind. The other player then dove on top of him. The team from John Jay High School in San Antonio was playing Marble Falls High School in Marble Falls, located about 90 miles north of San Antonio.
The names of the players and the referee have not been released.
