Results for - Daily Debate: Should referee press charges against two high school players who hit him?
Two high school football players from Texas were ejected from a game after appearing to intentionally target a referee and hit him from behind. One player lined up and charged the referee 10 yards away from the play, after he fell to the ground another player dove into him with his helmet. The players were ejected and later suspended from the team indefinitely as officials investigate the matter.
The referee was very upset and wanted to press charges said Austin Football Officials Association secretary Wayne Elliott. “The first thing we want is that those two kids never play football again,” said Elliott, who declined to release the referee’s name and added he was seeking guidance from the state officials association.
