According to San Antonio Express-News, Victor Rojas and Mike Moreno, the two John Jay High School football players who made national headlines for tackling a referee during a game against Marble Falls High School,  have been suspended from all UIL activities for the rest of the 2015-2016 school year. The punishment was handed down during a Thursday meeting of the University Interscholastic League State Executive Committee.

Coach Gary Gutierrez, who still coaches at Jay, has been placed on two years probation. Assistant Coach Mack Breed resigned from John Jay High School last month.The committee suspended Breed through 2016-17 school year and gave him an additional two years probation, which still applies were he to get a job as a coach at another Texas with a sports program governed by the University Interscholastic League.
The UIL however, suspended Breed for the rest of the year and put him on a two year probation if he is to coach at a UIL governed school.
