High school football teams brawl during drills

BATON ROUGE — Two Baton Rouge area football teams got into a heated brawl during a summer drill.

WAFB-TV reports football teams use the seven-on seven drills for most of the summer to get ready for the upcoming season.

But, when the teams from Woodlawn High and Plaquemine High got together Wednesday, things got a little heated.

Twenty minutes into their game, the television station reports tempers flared and a fight broke out. Punches were thrown and helmets were ripped off. It took coaches from both squads about five minutes to get things under order.

Plaquemine coach Bob Howell told The Advocate that his players realize that fighting is not acceptable in the game of football.

Woodlawn coach Don Jones said he has canceled his team's final 7-on-7 games.
