    A youth league football game Saturday afternoon turned into an on-the-field scuffle after a player was injured.

    At 4:02 p.m., a game being played at Northwest High School football field came to a halt when a Clarksville Football League player was injured.

    The player was lying on the field when his coach came to help him. Two coaches from the opposing team also came onto the field to assist.

    The coach from the first team punched both of the other coaches, according to a CPD report.

    A 12-year-old player, who was the son of one of the coaches, then hit the first coach in the back of the head with a helmet. The coach swung behind him, not realizing he was swinging at a young boy, the report said.

    Those involved were separated, and the coach left the property to calm things down. He apologized for his actions and was told an assault charge may be filed against him, the report said.

    The injured player was taken to Gateway Medical Center’s emergency room for treatment.

    No warrants had been filed as of Monday.

    The Clarksville Football League is not affiliated with the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System, according to schools spokeswoman Elise Shelton.

    This is a story that interest me. As I was once involved with this league for many years, it was taken over by Sean Dalton who has an over-inflated ego, and his bunch of board members that were his buddies and thieves. One Rachel Nelson of Clarksville Tn, was being indicted on stealing over 200,000 in funds from her employment to pay for her home, vehicles and children’s recreations such as Clarksville Youth Football League. This league once prospered with over 12 teams in each division once, and with past and presidents being corrupt and stealing from the children as well as acting like complete idiots while being a role model for their players. Is this the conduct you want your children around when they get involved with Organized Team Sports? I must say Clarksville Football league went from First to Worse in Tennessee, Coaches Punching other Coaches while an injured player lays on the ground, FFS, “never mind the kid with an injury lets beat each other up.” If you ever think about enrolling your child age 5-15 in this league, think again. I dont want mine coached by morons, and people with no morals.
