“A Texas high school football player, angered after being ejected from a game, charged onto the field and bowled over a referee Thursday night,” according to the New York Post and multiple other news sources.
“Senior defensive lineman Emmanuel Duron of Edinburg High School came running from the sideline area after the referee announced the ejection, slamming into the official during the first half of the zone play-in game against Pharr-San Juan-Alamo.
“Duron was escorted from the stadium by police officers.
“The Monitor of McAllen reported that the referee was evaluated for a concussion by medical personnel at the stadium.”
