High School Players Referee

This past weekend, a video of two high school football players intentionally spearing a referee went viral, for obvious reasons. It turns out the two young men, who play for John Jay High School in San Antonio, could be in a great deal of trouble following the incident.

According to Wayne Elliott, a secretary from the Austin Football Officials Association, the referee from the contest, whose name has not been released, is "very upset" and wants to press charges. ESPN reported the news early Tuesday morning:

"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.

Here's video of the incident, if you somehow missed it. It's despicable, to say the least.

We'll keep you updated on the situation.
