SAN ANTONIO — Two Texas high school football players who struck a referee during a game have been temporarily moved to an alternative school as investigations continue.

Northside Independent School District issued a statement Friday saying the two players from John Jay High School in San Antonio were moved while they await a disciplinary hearing. They reported to the school Friday.

Game video shows one of the players blindsiding umpire Robert Watts, and a second player then diving on top of him during a game last week in Marble Falls. The players allege that Watts used racial slurs; Watts denies the allegation.

The school district had already suspended the players. Separate investigations also are ongoing by Marble Falls police and the University Interscholastic League, which oversees Texas high school sports.
