Three members of the Flora JFL coaching staff resigned their positions Thursday. The resignations follow an incident during a Flora JFL game last Saturday against Mt. Carmel.

With a minute left in the game, a Flora player is seen in video of the play coming across the line of scrimmage ahead of the snap and knocking down an opposing lineman still in his pre-snap stance. Here is footage of the hit...

The Mt. Carmel lineman, Thomas Stringfellow, was knocked unconscious and was hospitalized until Monday. He is now recovering at home.

Olney has canceled its scheduled game with Flora as a result of the incident.
