The two Georgia high school football teams involved in a post-game brawl that left a coach severely injured are scheduled to face each other again this fall, but a school official insists on several conditions.
In a Class AAAA second-round playoff game, the three-time defending state champion Wolverines cruised to an easy 79-29 win over visiting Loganville. “It was a great defensive performance, and then some,” said Wolverines coach Sharman White.
The two schools involved in a post-game brawl that left a high school football coach severely injured will now play in different subregions. The Georgia High School Association's Reclassification Committee decided to separate Hancock Central and Warren County after the fight.
A community in east Georgia is still trying to come to terms with a brutal beating of a coach that took place two weeks ago after a high school football game. A melee broke-out between the players of Warren County and Hancock Central. The incident has prompted reviews of post-game conduct by other school districts.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says the Hancock County Sheriff Dept. has requested its assistance with the investigation into the assault of a Warren County football coach. The attack after last Friday's football game between Hancock Central and Warren County High Schools left coach David Daniels with serious injuries.
A brawl involving two Georgia high schools is prompting at least one other school district in the state to change its security policies for games. The Augusta Chronicle reports that the Richmond County Board of Education has amended its policy for post-game security and will now have two public safety officers on the field during the traditional handshake after athletic events.
Warren County Superintendent of Schools Carole Jean Carey was on hand in Sparta last Friday night when a Hancock Central player assaulted Warren County head coach David Daniel, sending the Screaming Devils coach to the hospital.
Warren County coach David Daniel suffered fractures around his cheek, nose and eye that will require major reconstructive surgery during an assault following the Screaming Devils' 21-2 victory over Hancock Central last Friday night in Sparta.
