High School Football Players Who Attacked Referee Claim They Were Following Coach's Orders


Michael Moreno and Victor Rojas, the Texas high school football players who hit a referee with cheap shots in the middle of a game, were on Good Morning America on Friday. Moreno and Rojas – with their lawyer sitting next to them – did their best to shift the blame onto their coach. Moreno said the coach ordered him to do it, while Rojas said that the order came from the coach, but was relayed to him by a teammate. Turns out the only people who aren’t to blame for this are the kids who hit an unsuspecting person from behind.  [Video via Uproxx]
