Former John Jay football players weigh in on referee controversy


Tonight, the Marble Falls Police Department is investigating after video shows two Northside ISD football players appearing to intentionally hit a referee during Friday's game at Marble Falls.

Since then, the unsportsmanlike behavior from John Jay High School has made national news.

Despite what happened though, practice resumed today for the Mustangs.

Fox San Antonio spoke with some former players who said they hope the athletes will walk off the field, learning more than just a new play.

"The coaching staff when I was here was hustle, discipline, and class," said former player Clifton Simmons. "My classmates and I, we had put the program in a great place. We had left a legacy."

"Jay's come a long way, and I know they're trying to rebuild their program to be a more positive, winning program," said former player Michael Cunningham. "I know the coaches are doing everything to make it their best, but man. It's just a big blackout right now."

Right now, those two players are suspended from John Jay High School and from the team.

At this time no charges have been filed.

Fox San Antonio will let you know more as the investigation continues.
