Pee Wee Football Player Kicks Opponent in the Head (Video)
Here’s an interesting story for you. It comes from a Sedalia Youth Football League game in Kansas City, where one 12-year-old pee wee football player retaliated to what he believed was an unnecessary shove after the play by throwing his opponent to the ground and kicking him in the head.
However, the most interesting part of this story isn’t what happened on the field. Rather, it’s how things were handled off the field afterwards.
Following the incident, both players were ejected from the game for their part in the melee—reports indicate that the recipient was ejected for taking off his helmet and swearing after being kicked—and the player who delivered the kick was believed to be suspended for two games. But much to the surprise of everyone, he was back on the field after just one game.
That didn’t sit too well with the mother of the victim, Keesha Martin. When she voiced her concern with league commissioner Jimmy Brown, she was told that the suspension was in fact just a one-game ban. That explanation seemed to irk Keesha, who then contacted the local news station, KCTV. They reported on the incident and posted the video on their Facebook page, and by Monday night it had been announced that the kid who kicked her son in the head would now be suspended for the remainder of the season.
So there you have it: if you don’t like someone’s decision, take it to the local news station and they’ll get it all cleared up for you.
