Rockwall Heath HS
Rockwall Independent School District announced that John Harrell submitted his resignation as head football coach and athletic campus coordinator at Rockwall-Heath High School. The football program came under fire after multiple players fell ill, and they hospitalized the athletes after a workout on Jan. 6. THe players did hundreds of push-ups that day. Third-party investigators determined the affected players had rhabdo, a disease that causes a severe breakdown of muscle tissue and releases a damaging protein into the bloodstream. In some cases, it can be fatal or cause permanent damage.
