I love this.
People in Texas have such a boner over high school football it’s comical. Coach Kilmer of the West Caanan Coyotes is injecting needles into star players’ knees and almost driving Billy Bob into an early grave, the Dillon Panthers put Jason Street in a wheelchair, and now this. The fucking dance teams fighting till the death.
According to Dallas’ Fox 4:
The fight between Wilmer Hutchins High School and James Madison High School’s drill teams happened after the football game ended last Friday at Wilmer Hutchins Stadium.
Deshannon Roberts’ daughter, 15-year-old Shamyra Cooper, had a member from Madison High School come over to her and perform a mock routine.
Here’s the genesis of the fight:
“You do have a personal space in which you are supposed to respect,” Roberts said. “That was not respected, so it was heated at that point.”
The dance team member from Madison returned and Cooper turned her back. Then there was a hit to the back of the head.
“I immediately leaped over the rail and ran to the field, trying to get my baby,” Roberts said. “By that time it was chaos.”
All drill team members have received a one-game suspension.
