Two Texas high school football players are accused of attacking a referee in the middle of a play.

On the left you see one of the defensive players make a bee line right to the referee when the ball is snapped, hitting him in the back. A second player comes in and hits the referee when he’s on the ground. The players were ejected from the game and suspended from school while the whole thing is being investigated. The referee is apparently very upset and wants to press charges.  The Austin Football Players Association says they want to make sure those kids never play football again.
