Players accused of striking referee moved to another school

Two Texas high school football players who struck a referee during a game have been temporarily moved to an alternative school as investigations into the matter continue.

The Northside school district on Friday issued a statement saying the two players for John Jay High School in San Antonio were moved while they await a disciplinary hearing. They reported to the alternative school Friday.

Their actions last week drew a firestorm of criticism when game video showed one of the players blindsiding umpire Robert Watts as he stood on the defensive side as a play unfolded. The second player then dove on top of him.

The two claimed Watts had earlier used racial slurs. He denies the allegation.

The school district previously suspended the players, and the University Interscholastic League is investigating.
