Coach Attacks Player

A volunteer coach with the Carrabelle High School football team could face charges for allegedly attacking a player.

The incident happened last Tuesday evening during practice.

Witnesses told Franklin County investigators Rodney Kilbourne began verbally abusing one of the players during a drill called ‘Bull in the Ring’.

The player invited Kilbourne to take a turn in the ring, which he reportedly did. They say the player then threw a block on Kilbourne, who responded by grabbing the player’s helmet and hitting him in the face.

Witnesses say they had to pull Kilbourne off of the player.

Sheriff's officials say Kilbourne is no longer volunteering with the football team.

Franklin County school district officials did not return our calls.
