MARBLE FALLS, Texas (AP) — A San Antonio School district is investigating after a football player ran into the back of a referee watching a play and another player then dove into the official after he fell. Both players were ejected from the game. Pascual Gonzalez, a spokesman for the Northside Independent School District, told The Associated Press that video of the incident was “extremely disturbing.” Gonzalez said the district is investigating and will hold a due process hearing with interviews with game officials, coaches and students. “It is not the good sportsmanlike behavior that we teach students,” he said. The team from John Jay High School in San Antonio was playing Marble Falls High School in Marble Falls, located about 90 miles north of San Antonio.
