AHSAA releases statement on Cullman vs. Walker football fight

Posted: Updated:

The Alabama High School Athletics Association continues to investigate a fistfight between Cullman and Walker football coaches that left one of the involved parties on administrative leave.

The AHSAA expressed sadness and disappointment in the actions of the parties involved in the fight.

"The AHSAA is always disappointed by any unsportsmanlike incident that involves players or coaches from our member schools. Our coaches are teachers first, and must demonstrate examples of good sportsmanship at all times.

"We truly understand the passions that are involved in competitive athletics, but we can never allow those passions to cross the line and become unsportsmanlike in nature," AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese said in a statement today.

"This is an isolated incident, and is not indicative of the good sportsmanship demonstrated by the more than 10,000 coaches in our state each day," he reiterated.

The AHSAA will continue to investigate the incident and will release their findings to the involved schools.
