The University Interscholastic League suspended Emmanuel Duron, the Edinburg High School football player who attacked an official, from future UIL-sanctioned activities and placed the entire high school on a 2 year probation.
Edinburg Head Football Coach JJ Leija was placed on probation for the remainder of the year and 2021-2022 school year and will also have a public reprimand on his UIL record.
The viral video of Duron tackling an official during a game earlier this month was seen by many but it was not his first offense.
