    Regardless, definitely improper behavior by our coach.
    Sounds like our coach was just as guilty. Shameful either way.

    The Jasper Board of Education acted swiftly and placed Walker head football coach John Holladay on administrative leave today, according to the Daily Mountain Eagle's Facebook page. Administrative leave means the employee is suspended with pay.
    AHSAA Executive Director Steve Saverese confirmed in an e-mail this morning that the governing body will investigate the incident. AHSAA officials ordinarily request videotape from the participating schools, and school officials are sometimes summoned to Montgomery to meet with Savarese.

    Yea you know how the rumors go, but it seems to be about near the truth. I'm not sure about a sucker punch either (some people have no idea if a punch is a sucker punch or just a man beating you down while you watch) but like you said it seems the Cullman DC said something to the Walker HC and then the Walker HC proceeded to beat him down pretty bad. Whether it was a cheap shot or not who knows at this point. I think it is almost certain now that he did throw the first punch though. I'm to the point that BOTH should be fired and be done with. Neither deserve to represent their school anymore.

    You better believe Coach Savarese will have them in Montgomery with a copy of the tape. I expect some pretty swift and heavy consequences for both fools and possibly see both schools punished as well and/or just placed on probation. They'll probably still get to see the playoffs but be on a year or two probation with a short leash.

    That's out of character for Coach Holladay. Ive played against his teams several times when he was at Hamilton. Also was around him several times at weight meets & such He was always a class act. Wonder what happened. Either way inexcusable.

    You, obviously, have never been to Walker Co (& surrounding areas). This level of maturity & rationality doesn't exist here.

    There should be zero tolerance for brawling at football games. I'm disappointed when people try to glorify it.

    With Alabama's new gun laws, the potential is way up for a disaster beyond a fistfight or brawl when tempers flare at ballgames. Imagine if the brawl had spilled over to the fans in the parkinglot, with many of those yahoos armed.

    If the spirit in Walker County is to brawl first, then think it over, that needs to be broken, whatever it takes. Same for Cullman or any other county.

    I used to be a FHSAA football official and still umpire high school baseball and softball . The policy in football was to leave the field immediately when the game is over . In baseball and softball , we stay around for the hand shake and then leave if everything is cool . As volatile as football can be , it would seem the officials should stick around to try and prevent things like this from happening .Then again , it could be the officials getting the beating !

    I grew up in Walker County. I'm not sure heathens applies here but I will say that the water tastes different in Walker County. Since Cullman County adjoins Walker County I would assume that some of that water flows into Cullman County.

    Fox 6 just aired video of the incident. It clearly showed the Walker coach attack the one from Cullman. The Cullman coach went over to speak to him and it was on. I did not see any taunting by Cullman players. It looked like others may have been involved but it was hard to tell in the video.

    Don't know what was said by two coaches, but Walkers Coach clearly was the aggressor.
