Homecoming in question

HICKMAN, Ky. — Police and KHSAA officials are reviewing video of a brawl that broke out in western Kentucky during the Calloway County-Fulton County high school football game last Friday.

Fulton County Sheriff’s Deputy John Amberg told WYVY Radio in Union City, Tenn., that the brawl erupted with four minutes left in the fourth quarter on Friday night. Amberg said some fans from both schools came onto the field after players began fighting.

Calloway County head coach Josh McKeel said he was to meet with a Kentucky High School Athletic Association official on Monday to discuss the fight, The Murray Ledger & Times reported.

It remains unclear how many Fulton County players might be disqualified from playing in this week's game at Crittenden County, which is homecoming.

KHSAA officials are supposed to rule Wednesday on those issues. If the Fulton does not have enough players to field a team, the game will be forfeited. If so, homecoming activities on game night will postponed to a later date.
