Coach suspended, players disciplined after brawl at Va. football game

One of the head coaches whose team was involved in an on-field fight following last Friday’s high school football game between Virginia high schools has been suspended.
Parents told Richmond’s WRIC this week that Hermitage High School (Henrico, Va.) head coach Derrick Johnson had been suspended from the team as a result of the team’s brawl with Douglas Freeman High School (Henrico, Va.) last Friday night.
In a statement obtained by WRIC, school officials said that ‘multiple players’ received school consequences for their role in the brawl, which resulted in one player being taken to the hospital
