School officials from Fitzgerald and defending Class A champion Wilcox County were scheduled to meet on Tuesday night, according to WALB-TV.
The Georgia High School Association is still awaiting on written reports from both schools before determining any possible disciplinary measures.
WALB’s Stephanie Springer talked to several eyewitnesses and described the scene as a “brawl involving more than 100 people.”
“You see players, parents, coaches even onlookers jumping the fence and running out into the field it was pretty confusing,” Investigator Patrick Hogan, who was working security during the game, told the TV station.
One of the parents of a Fitzgerald player was quoted as saying, “It was like the whole team just rushed, from there normally they would walk down the line and shake hands but they just rushed toward us and chaos just begun.” Click here to read the rest of the report.
GHSA executive director Ralph Swearngin told the AJC because it was a practice (scrimmage) and not a regular game, there would not likely be any suspensions — unless it was proven that a player or coach tried to intentionally harm someone else.
