Coaches and players violently attack youth football referee High School football players

Fights on the football field are not all that uncommon, but one from a high school game in Sarasota is enough to make you catch your breath.

A woman's voice can be heard in the video as she screams, "Oh my God," when a referee fighting with a coach is tackled in full sprint by a young football player.

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is investigating the melee that started when coachees and a referee began to throw punches after the referee calls the game.

The incident involved the Sarasota Gators and North Port Huskies during a game on Saturday afternoon at Riverview High School in Sarasota.

Several men along the sidelines with the Sarasota Gators get verbally and physically agitated with the referee. The video shows one of the men, who was dressed as a coach, following the referee as he leaves the field.

The camera leaves the two for a moment and then shows other coaches sprinting toward a fight happening on the field.
