San Antonio high school football player shoves referee during game

Another San Antonio high school football player is in the spotlight after shoving an official during a game.

After a third quarter play in the game between St. Anthony and Austin Hyde Park, Video from shows a scuffle between the players breaks out and a referee throws a flag.

The players are seen talking with that referee, then he throws yet another flag. Immediately, St. Anthony quarterback Zeke Cardenas turns and shoves the official. The video shows his teammates pulling him away right before he was thrown out of the game.

The University of the Incarnate Word oversees St. Anthony High School and released a statement to KSAT 12 News Sunday morning that read, "Today's incident in which a football player shoved an official is troubling, not the sportsman like behavior we teach students at St. Anthony. This incident has been reported to TAPPS and we will take appropriate action. Again, St. Anthony does not condone nor tolerate this type of behavior."

The Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools, or TAPPS, serves the same purpose as the UIL for public schools and is investigating.

This latest incident comes after a similar incident involving two John Jay High School football players on Sept. 4, which gained national attention. To John Jay players tackled referee Robert Watts. They claim he directed racial slurs at them, but Watts says that is not true. Those students have since been placed at an alternative high school while the UIL and several other agencies investigate.

This story comes to us from our sister station in San Antonio, KSAT-TV.
