Colquitt County head football coach Rush Propst has been suspended for the 2016 season.
Reports said that Propst head butted a player during the Class AAAAAA state semifinal at Mill Creek last December.
The suspension comes after a letter from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission informing him that he has been suspended for one year for the incident, apparently for making contact with a student.
Propst has appealed and is continuing to prepare his team for a 2016 season in which the Packers will seek a third-straight championship in the state’s highest classification.
Propst said he could not comment on the case.
The Packers went on to defeat Roswell 30-13 the following week to take their second straight Class AAAAAA state championship and run their winning streak to 30 straight games.
