Five MP players suspended after ‘thuggish’ hoodie burning video

Five Mary Persons players, including top running back Dee High, have been suspended for Friday night’s game with Lamar County after posting an obscenity-laced Facebook video in which they set fire to a hoodie brandishing an LC logo. The video came two weeks after Pike players taunted Lamar with a basket of pigs feet, bacon and bacon bits left outside their dressing room before the game. The slur backfired on the Pirates who were down 40 points at the half. (There is a link to the video inside this open thread.) The Macon Telegraph picked up on the video story and reported it. You can read that coverage Meanwhile, Will Davis of the Monroe County Reporter reports that the five are out for Friday night’s game and the Monroe County Board of Education is seeking even harsher punishment. Additionally, there are now security concerns for the game so expect to see a heavy law enforcement presence at the game Friday night. Hunter had 30 carries for 216 yards in MP’s season opener against Jackson. MP has not posted stats from their blowout loss at Washington County last week.
