WAPAKONETA, Ohio (WDTN) – Trotwood-Madison High School parents are concerned over racism at a recent football game.
Last Saturday, the Trotwood Rams beat the Wapakoneta Redskins 41-7 in Wapakoneta. Following the playoff game Trotwood parents say Wapakoneta students made racial remarks and wove the Confederate flag.
The Rams have beat the Redskins out of the playoffs three seasons in a row.
One parent who wanted to remain anonymous for the safety of his child said players threw footballs at band members and called them the ‘n-word’.
2 NEWS reached out to Wapakoneta superintendent, Keith Horner and received the following statement via e-mail:
“There were incidents reported and observed at the football game that we most certainly consider unacceptable. When we learned of these incidents, we acted quickly to address the issue if it was possible. We did not learn of all the reported incidents until well after the game.”
We asked if any students would be facing disciplinary actions and Horner responded, “I will not address student discipline due to any legal implications.”
