Inglewood-Morningside High School football game: Morningside players talk about 106-0 loss


INGLEWOOD, Calif. (KABC) – Inglewood High School’s resounding victory on the football field over Morningside High School has exploded on social media. Inglewood beat Morningside 106-0 on Friday.

Inglewood High’s unbalanced victory over Morningside High garnered national attention and drew much criticism. But Morningside football player Dayvon Scruggs says he thinks the attention is overkill.

“The media makes things worse than they need to be,” Scruggs said. “A game is a game. We lost. There is nothing there.”

The Southern Chapter of the California Interscholastic Federation condemned Inglewood’s conduct in the game in a statement, saying it “expects all athletic competitions to be conducted under the strictest code of good sportsmanship. We expect coaches, players, officials, administrators and students to adhere to the Six Pillars of Character – Reliability, Respect, Accountability, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. A score of 106-0 does not represent these ideals. .

“The CIF-SS condemns, in the strongest terms, results such as these. We hope the Inglewood administration will work to put in place a plan of action so that an event like this this does not repeat itself. “

The Inglewood quarterback, who pledged to play at UCLA, made 13 touchdowns in the game, which has made many wonder why the leniency rule was not passed and has raised sportsmanship issues.

“He used their star quarterback so that was to be expected,” said Scruggs. “We came into the game knowing we were going to lose, but at the same time we fought until the end and didn’t give up and that’s what really matters.”

Morningside freshman head coach Brian Collins told the Los Angeles Times it was a “classless decision.” Officials in Inglewood and Morningside declined to comment, but the Inglewood Unified School District released a statement saying: “We of the Inglewood Unified School District are saddened beyond words by the events that have taken place. took place during Friday’s football game between Inglewood and Morningside High Schools. We will investigate fully. “

“I was crazy when we lost,” said Deontraye Hawkins, a Morningside football player. “But again, it’s like ‘OK, we lost. OK. “”
