Youth football league launches probe after man allegedly shouts racial slurs at opposing team

Dec 16, 2022

A youth football organization is investigating after a video surfaced this week reportedly showing a man affiliated with one of the teams targeting coaches from an opposing team with racial slurs at a tournament in Florida earlier this month.

Pop Warner, one of the largest youth football organizations in the country, based out of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, released a statement to Fox News Digital on Friday after video taken after the Division II, 12U quarterfinal match between the Hamden Hurricanes and Highlands Ranch Mountain Lions appeared to show a man using a racial slur directed at the Hurricanes coaching staff.

"A video has come to our attention showing adults, reported to be associated with a Pop Warner team, using racist and threatening language toward coaches from another team. The disturbing behavior shown in the video is inconsistent with our code of conduct and the expectations we have of our adult volunteers," the statement read.
