Katy’s starting quarterback, Bronson McClelland, was handed down a two-game suspension by the team after a video surfaced of him using racial slurs. The video first appeared on Snapchat, then shared over Twitter, shows the quarterback using the insensitive language after the Tigers beat Tompkins 35-30.
McClelland took to his Twitter to issue an apology saying:
Katy’s next two matchups are on the road at 3-2 Morton Ranch and at home against 3-3 Seven Lakes. With McClelland returning for their game against Cinco Ranch.
After the video surfaced a letter was sent to parents at Katy High School with the districts stance on the manner saying, “This type of behavior and language is not in line with the values of our district … the district is committed to keeping students safe, both physically and emotionally.” (Chron.com)
There hasn’t been any information on if the quarterback will suffer any more discipline from the school, or football team as the incident is still being looked in to by school officials.
