Ermon Lane’s high school football career could be over.
On Thursday night, the Florida receiver commit was ejected from Homestead’s game against Miami Palmetto for throwing a punch.
According to Chris Green of the South Dade News Leader, Lane was involved in a pile up and allegedly punched a player who was down. Lane argued he was going for the ball.
“I tried to strip the guy but they say I punched him,” Lane tweeted afterward.
The Florida High School Athletic Association’s punishment for fighting is a six-game suspension (Level 2). Homestead has four regular season games remaining and is 0-3 in its district.
The FHSAA will review the incident and could suspend him just one game (Level 1) for the ejection. But if it determines Lane hit the Palmetto player, he would be done for the year.
“Hopefully the appeals process will work out,” Homestead coach Larry Coffey told Green.
