They say the south takes their high school football seriously, apparently these coaches sure do because they decided to throw fists over it. This Alabama High School Coaches Fist Fight has been going viral.
A high school football game in Alabama ended on Friday with some fists being thrown by the coaches of Walker and Cullman high schools. Cullman defensive coordinator Matt Hopper and Walker head coach John Holladay were the two men that engaged in the fight following the final whistle.
Holladay was placed on administrative leave on Sunday after the Board of Education reviewed the incident, but Cullman decided not to punish anyone that was involved stating ”there is no need to reprimand our coaches and players, that they acted with class and dignity during the situation.” (via FanSided)
That is Hopper pictured above, it definitely looks like he got the worst of it. He has a huge purple shiner and blood pouring out everywhere. Makes you wonder if the kids got any shots in as well? The Alabama High School Coaches Fist Fight situation happens like twice a year it seems, parents/coaches taking the kids game a little too seriously.
