WARRENTON, Ga. (AP) -- The Warren County schools superintendent
says a high school football coach and his team were ambushed by
opposing players after a game, and helmets were used as weapons in the ensuing brawl.
Superintendent Carole Jean Carey tells WRDW-TV (http://bit.ly/rmrEgs) that she was with Warren County High School Coach David Daniels and the team when they returned to their locker room after Friday's game.
Carey says they found the locker room doors locked, and their
players and coaches were cornered. She said she saw Daniels being
smashed in the face with a helmet during the fight that followed.
School officials said he has crushed bones in his face, and
surgeons had to place metal plates in his head. Hancock County Sheriff Tomlyn Primus says his office is looking into the matter.
