Nearly a year ago, Warren County head football coach David Daniel ended up in the hospital with crushed facial bones after a post-game fight.

The brawl erupted between players after Warren County’s win over Hancock Central High.

Friday night, the teams will meet again for the first time since the violence. GPB’s Jon Nelson has been talking to Daniel and the school districts and he has this update.
