High schoolers target referee

2 Texas high schoolers suspended after hitting ref

texas high school incident Two high football players from San Antonio's John Jay High School have been suspended from school and could face criminal charges after an incident in Friday's game against Marble Falls.

The two players appeared to target and hit referee Robert Watts during a play in the fourth quarter. One of the players was ejected from the game on the spot, while the other stayed in the game because the referees initially misidentified who hit Watts, according to Ben Baby of the Express News.

The two players have since been suspended from school and the football team. Baby reports that the Marble Falls Police Department is investigating the incident, meaning criminal charges are possible.

Video of the incident has been viewed six million times and sparked outrage. Here's the clip:

The Texas University Interscholastic League issued the following statement:

"The UIL is extremely concerned about the actions portrayed in the football game between Marble Falls and San Antonio Jay. The League is working with the school districts and officials involved to conduct a thorough investigation. The UIL takes this matter very seriously and will take appropriate action once the investigation is complete."
