The UIL State Executive Committee voted to continue the suspension of a high school student athlete for the remainder of the 2016-17 school year. The student was previously suspended by the UIL State Executive Committee following an incident in which he and another student deliberately tackled and injured a referee during a football game at the direction of the assistant coach.

The student will be eligible to play at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year and will be on probation, which would cause immediate suspension if he receives an unsportmanlike conduct penalty.
