Dudley High School quarterback suspended for throwing a punch in last week’s game

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Last Friday's Dudley Panthers vs. Davie War Eagles High School Football game had more than just your regular highlights.

In the second quarter with the Dudley High School Panthers in scoring position, quarterback Hendon Hooker ran the ball on first down. After Hooker was tackled on about the 5-yard line the referees threw the yellow flag.

The refs gave Hooker an unsportsmanlike penalty for throwing a punch.

He was ejected and will be suspended for one game for the penalty per NCHSAA rules.

The Dudley Panthers are in the process of appealing the call.
