Texas youth league sanctions coaches in 'Friday Night Tykes'

Wednesday's Heads Up Football news:

  • As the youth league featured in the reality series "Friday Night Tykes" learns about Heads Up Football, two of the league's coaches were suspended this week for actions displayed during a recent episode, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

Chavarria directed his players to hit opponents in the earhole of the helmets; a clear violation of the Heads Up Football principles.

Marecus Goodloe, who coaches the North East Colts, also was suspended for encouraging profanity during the series, including an obscene chant toward opponents.

Morgan said more sanctions could be coming after the end of the reality series, which has shown coaches screaming at crying and vomiting 8- and 9-year-old players.
