'Footbrawl' Breaks Out During High School Game
An all-out brawl broke out on the field of a high school football game after the coaches started throwing punches. Two rival assisting coaches in Indianapolis got into a fight after a player was tackled out of bounds.
The fans and teams of both Arsenel Tech and Fort Wayne South joined the melee. Cops were called to the scene and one of the coaches landed in the hospital.
One coach has been suspended for the rest of the season. Emil Ekiyor, the head coach of Arsenal Tech High School, told reporters, “We teach our kids not to retaliate when that happens. And the fact that he did throw a punch, even though he was hit, he was provoked, is something that we just can’t condone.”
The Indiana Athletics High School Association is investigating.
