OSG High: Alabama, Georgia Schools Both Facing Player Suspensions

((HT: WTVY-TV Dothan))

Georgia high school history was set last Friday night, but for the wrong reason.

In the Seminole County ((GA))- Daleville ((AL)) game, a fight broke out in the third quarter with Daleville on top 28-13. All but nine Seminole players were suspended, rendering their game with Mitchell County ((GA)) a forfeit since they won't have enough warm bodies to play.

Daleville got off a little easier: a $2500 fine and eleven two-game suspensions.
Brad Sherwood has the Alabama version...

Here's the entire statement from the AHSAA's Andrew Kelley... “This morning we received notice from the Alabama High School Athletic Association concerning fines and sanctions imposed for the altercation that occurred during the Daleville/Seminole County football game last Friday night. Daleville High School cooperated with the AHSAA, agree with the sanctions imposed and deeply regret that the altercation occurred. Fines against Daleville will total $2,500 and a number of our players will be suspended for 2 games. Good sportsmanship is something we pride ourselves in at Daleville and we will not allow unsportsmanlike conduct to go unpunished. This was an unfortunate event for both schools and we sincerely hope that the young men involved will learn from their mistakes.”
