A recent high school football game has garnered significant attention after a controversial incident between a player and an official. This took place during the game between Whitney and Dallas Madison last Friday.
A video circulating on social media shows a Whitney player, while on defense, accidentally colliding with an official on the field. The official reacted by grabbing the player’s facemask, causing his helmet to fall off.
The player’s mother took to former twitter to express her outrage, writing: “How can a ref do this?! MY SON was ejected after being assaulted by the official!”
The University Interscholastic League (UIL) promptly addressed the issue with a statement, saying, “We’re aware of the incident from the Whitney vs. Dallas Madison game on Friday. We’re deeply concerned and are currently investigating the situation.”
It’s reported that the player was ejected following the high school football incident. Despite this, Whitney secured a victory with a score of 56-28.
