TSSAA agrees on
punishment for two
CHATTANOOGA (AP) — Tennessee’s high school sports sanctioning body says it will accept two high schools’ self-punishments because it has no jurisdiction over football workouts.
The TSSAA letter to officials of Signal Mountain and Soddy-Daisy high schools comes in the wake of a July 16 on-field fight that involved a number of players from both schools and at least one Signal Mountain parent, according to reports.
The TSSAA willingly accepted Soddy-Daisy’s proposal that includes a one-game suspension of the head coach and requiring every player to skip practice to help move furniture at the school for one day.
