Default Re: High school football skirmish turns into assault

That kid should have to publicly apologize face to face with the guy he whacked over the head. Anything less and he should be flat out banned from sports. It's pretty messed up to hit someone with your helmet but when you're pissed off and you're adrenaline is up and you're playing a violent contact sport I can see the mistake. Generally you see fist fights, using a helmet was taking things way too far but if it's an isolated incident and this kid really regrets it everyone deserves a second chance. We also didn't really see very well what started the whole thing. I'm not saying hitting him with the helmet was okay but perhaps the lineman did something to set the guy off. I know some lineman I played against were pretty damned dirty. Punching in the ribs, hitting in the balls, etc...
