A shooting at a Friday night high school football game killed a teenager and injured two in Oklahoma. It sent players and officials scrambling off the field and caused panicked spectators to crouch in the stands. Two other people were injured while fleeing the scene. A 16-year-old boy died after the shooting in the third quarter between Choctaw High and Del City High School in Choctaw, on the eastern outskirts of Oklahoma City.
As high school football season kicks off, districts across East Texas and the state have had to endure an officiating shortage that has forced some games to move from their traditional Friday night schedule. Sixteen games in the Fort Worth area were moved from Friday to Thursday because of official shortages. It is the first year of a ten-year pay increase agreement between TASO and the University Interscholastic League (UIL). Officials will receive a pay increase every three years and be compensated for their travel time to the game based on their district office. Football officials will receive a minimum of $95 for a varsity game this year, not including travel compensation, up to $5 from last year.
