A University High School football player brutally attacks one of his opponents at a Dallas game two weeks ago and it’s all caught on camera.
The incident happened Sept. 13th in a game against University and Burleson High School.
“As the player continues to push him down, Gower can be heard screaming for someone to get him off. Jagger later told her the player was choking him.
“That’s not a tackle… it was awful,” said Gower reflecting on the moment.
Jagger remains sidelined due to doctor’s orders while they wait for his head injury to heal. But according to Gower, other parents told her the player responsible for the injuries was seen on the field one week later.
Waco ISD released a statement saying,
““We do not condone the behavior depicted in the videos posted on Facebook. We have high expectations for our student athletes, and when a student fails to meet them, there are consequences. In this situation, the player faced consequences mandated by UIL and additional consequences imposed by the district.”
“The school and the local district executive committee have the authority to impose additional suspensions or additional penalties for involved students. The UIL State Executive Committee also has the authority to impose additional penalties.”
If parents that are already worried to see their child play football catch this, it will only make them even more hesitant. Let the tackling and concussing happen in the right way.
