A high school football brawl ensued at a school in Indiana and it was called "a coach's worst nightmare." On Sept. 28, FOX Sports reported that a volunteer tech coach and the Fort Wayne South coach got into a fight on the sidelines -- and at least one punch was thrown. The tech coach got suspended for the remainder of the season and is considering pressing charges. So how did things get to this point?
"The brawling started when Arsenal Tech High school running back James Gilbert was tackled out of bounds in the third quarter of the game with Fort Wayne South," FOX News reported.
The high school football brawl didn't just involve the two coaches either. People started coming from the bleachers and running onto the field -- which coach Emil Ekiyor says was the most frightening because no one knew just how bad things were going to get. There weren't any reports of parents or spectators actually fighting but things could have gotten really out of hand.
The football game was stopped with 1:41 left in the third quarter. Tech was leading the game 24-6, and while this wasn't a playoff game, tensions were really high. Even still, once the fight was started, it was hard to get everyone to chill out.
Any high school football brawl can get out of hand quickly. Luckily, no one was seriously injured in this incident.
