Request: Video from Seminole County- Daleville (Ala.) Football Game Brawl

A massive, bench-clearing brawl took place during the Seminole County (Georgia) and Daleville High School (Alabama) football game. Following similar patterns of athletic brawls at the high school and collegiate level nationwide, SBPDL believes this brawl deserves recognition at this Web site.

Based on demographics from both schools and YouTube evidence of the 2009 Daleville football team, it is obvious both teams are over 80 percent Black (maybe closer to 90 percent). What causes this agitation among Black participants in sports?:

Seminole lost to Daleville, Ala., 28-13, Friday night in a game-that was shortened because of a major fight in the third quarter.
According to Seminole coach Alan Ingram, with 3:34 left in the frame, after a bad snap by the Indians (3-2), a Daleville player picked up the ball and began to run with it before a Seminole player tackled him. One thing led to another, and the benches started to clear after a Daleville player hit a Seminole player in the back.

“The crazy things is that neither team (was agitated) up to that point,” Ingram said. “It just kind of exploded.”
The referees called the game after some of the skirmish spread to the stands.

“We’ll just have to send the tape to (GHSA) and see what they decide,” Ingram said. “The rules clearly state that if you get off the bench, you sit out the following game.”

Daleville gets the victory after jumping out to a 21-7 lead at halftime .

“They had a very good football team, nothing like the score indicates,” Ingram said. “We didn’t play (well) and it just means we have to go back and regroup and find out why we weren’t ready to play.”

The Indians will definitely have a lot to think about before they face Mitchell County next week.

“I’m just glad we got out of it with nobody getting hurt,” Ingram said. “We’re just disappointed and we let ourselves down and didn’t perform.”
Seminole County had all but nine of its players suspended for this brawl. Video evidence of this brawl has yet to surface on the internet, so we come to readers with a simple request: help us find it so we can ensure it receives the proper amount of coverage the story deserves.

Putting together a book (10-10-10 is the release of SBPDL: Year One), a new Web site (to counter-act Google) and the impending release of the YouTube SBPDL Channel is laborious work. Help us out by trying to find video evidence of the brawl.

So many stories transpire that deserve to be written about, but due to time constraints are left on the cutting floor. In virtual back-to-back days, separate incidents involving 90+ year-old individuals occurred that should send chills down your spine.

One in Philadelphia; the other in Atlanta. People are falling and no one is there to help them up.

SBPDL has been accused of a lot of stuff since this Web site became operative roughly a year and a four months ago.  Regardless of what is stated, we merely search for honesty in a land where it is glaring back at us with a haughty smirk, knowing full well that hiding in plain sight guarantees acceptance.

We don't accept things the way they are; neither should you.

Help us find the video of the brawl. We know the cameras were rolling.

Because remember, without the positive images that sports help manipulate, craft and portray of Black people, Black Run America (BRA) crumbles to the ground and all that is left is pent-up aggression for the past. 

The fate of billions might not depend upon us finding and securing a copy of this brawl, but... it just might.
