(ABC13) — Two players on the John Jay High School football team came under fire after targeting a referee during a game last week.
"The incident is shameful and in no way reflects who Northside ISD and Jay High School are," Woods said.

The district, which has 105,000 students, is in the process of filing a complaint about the racial slur allegation with the Texas Association of Sports Officials, Woods said.
Michael Fitch, the association's executive director, didn't immediately return a call seeking comment on Tuesday. The name of the referee has not been made public.
Video from Friday's game between John Jay High School and Marble Falls High School showed the referee watching a play, and his head snapping back when he is leveled from behind. The other player then dove on top of him. The game took place in Marble Falls, located about 90 miles north of San Antonio.
