Football team returns to field week after players struck ref

A Texas high school football team has returned to the field a week after two of its players were seen in game video striking a referee.

The Jay Mustangs played Del Rio on Friday before a larger-than-usual home crowd of about 3,100.

Jay fans say the school is being unfairly maligned because of the incident. Robert Davila told KENS-TV the school is "being ambushed for something two kids did."

Video from last week's game against Marble Falls shows one of the players blindsiding umpire Robert Watts, and a second player then diving on top of him.

The players allege that Watts used racial slurs; Watts denies the allegation.

The players were suspended and moved to an alternative school as investigations continue.

Jay lost Friday's game to Del Rio, 37-14.
