The parents of Glendora football player J.R. Smith, who suffered a broken nose and facial lacerations after allegedly having his helmet ripped off and being punched by a West Covina player during Friday night’s game, are waiting to see what disciplinary action West Covina administrators take before deciding on any legal action, according to a source.
Smith was taken to an emergency room for treatment following Friday’s game, sources say, and was treated for his injuries. Meanwhile, the West Covina player was reportedly removed from the game and the Bulldogs coaching staff apologized to Glendora’s staff for the incident after the game.
There has been speculation that Smith’s family will seek some sort of legal action, according to sources. But another source says that won’t happen if they deem West Covina’s punishment to be just. The administrations of both schools will be working closely today to resolve the matter, a source says.
