Cedar Hill coach on late hits vs. Gorman: ‘A lot of what you saw was retaliation’

The game is over. We just can't stop talking about the outcome.

That’s what happens when one team beats the other by 30 points in a highly anticipated game on national television in front of a standing-room-only crowd.

Almost immediately following the Bishop Gorman High football team’s 44-14 victory last week at Cedar Hill of Texas, clips were posted on Twitter showing Cedar Hill players getting in late hits on Gorman’s Haskell Garrett and Tate Martell. Garrett was knocked out of the game in the fourth quarter.
