October 30, 2012The game of football is physical and dangerous enough without players playing dirty and performing, what appear to be premeditated and probably encouraged, acts of hooliganism on the field with the intent to harm. There is NO PLACE in football for this kind of activity and the players who peform these acts should no longer have the honor of playing this game at the high school level and the coaches who encourage it should be joining the unemployeed.
If you watch very closely in the second clip, you will notice No. 29 in white punching/elbowing the downed QB in the head as he gets up. Watch this video several times and watch every player on the defense as the action unfolds. Keep in mind, the offense was no where near snapping the ball in the first few clips and in the second game (defense in dark jerseys) the ball had just been set by the ref for play - again, no where near a snap. These "off-sides" attacks were obviously planned.
While most people will ask "what is the SCHSL going to do about it," I think it is the responsibility of the Florence School District 1 to act on this. So the question is, what are THEY going to do about it? Is this the type of representation of their school district that they want on the sidelines and on the field on Friday nights? Really?
