Watch a Shocking Video of a Defenseless Referee Taken Out by Two High School Players
This disturbing and shocking incident happened on Friday during a high school football game between Marble Falls and San Antonio John Jay. As you can see in the video above, two players target a defenseless referee during a play and take him out. Info coming out of San Antonio is that the players were angry with the play calling of the referee.
My San Antonio has more information on this shocking event:
"Late in Jay’s 15-9 loss at Marble Falls, one defensive back ran from 7 yards away into the back of an official watching a run play unfold 9 yards in front of him.
After the referee’s fell to the turf after the first hit, another player standing to the right of the referee and several yards away led with his helmet and dove into the official.
Both players were ejected. Northside ISD athletic director Stan Laing said the video was “very disturbing.” Laing said the district is investigating the sequence of events leading up to the play, and the University Interscholastic League is aware of what happened."
