    A high school athlete in Linden, New Jersey, has been kicked off the football team and is in the process of being suspended from school after he was caught on tape hitting a player on the opposing team with a helmet, a Linden official said today.

    The Linden Public School District said in a statement today that it was "extremely disheartened" at the incident that occurred Friday, during the second quarter of a varsity football game with Immaculata High School.

    In a video, an Immaculata player can be seen losing his helmet during a play. Then, a Linden player strikes him in the head with it. The Immaculata player then stands up, raising his arms in the air, and a flag is thrown. The Linden player reportedly received a penalty for unsportsmanlike behavior but was not ejected from the game. The players' identities were not released.

    "The Board of Education is appalled by the conduct of this student athlete. ... The brutal action taken by this young man is simply unacceptable and will not be condoned," the Linden district said in a news release. "The board is pursuing the severest disciplinary measures permitted under law and has removed this student from the football team."


    Officials from Immaculata, located in Somerville, New Jersey, said they reviewed the tape and contacted officials at Linden. Immaculata said Linden had been cooperative and "apologetic" about the incident.

    "We do not believe this reflects the Linden athletic program," Immaculata said in its statement. "Our history with them has been stellar for many years now."

    The Linden official said the school's coaching staff would be interviewed to determine whether there had been a previous altercation between the teams' players. The official also said the district was using the incident as a "teaching moment" to stress that violence would not be tolerated.

    The injured player had received 10 stitches after the game to close the wound, Immaculata said. The school also said that it had contacted the Linden Police Department as well as the Union County Prosecutor’s Office.

    So far, no charges have been filed.

    Dawg, where have you been?

    It seems like you haven't been here much over the last week.

    Is everything OK or am I just not seeing your posts?

    If we'd just ban football helmets, these violent attacks would end

    Please, In Texas the football state this is childs play. I have seen far worse in person. We are turning into a nation of sissies. Football is a violent game, if you dont have the stomach for it, stay out of it.

    You can be a ferociously tough football player without clubbing an opponent with his own helmet. That's not the standard by which we separate the tough guys from the pussies.

    For my money, the pussy is the one who can't compete against the guy across the line from him without resorting to such cheap, bush league tactics.

    He was punished, i am not condoning his actions i am just saying we are outraged today over everything.

    My coach back in school used to have us duke it out when we had a disagreement. Can you imagine today? The school would be sued and he would be jailed.

    The outrage today is nauseating.

    Damn dawg. We're usually on the same page about stuff like this, but I just can't see it.
    There is no place for violence like that on the field.
    Yes, shit was different when we went to school.
    Brutal 2-a-days. Getting screamed at or even hit.
    Anything that happened in a dogpile was fair game.
    But this, this is not ok. And never will be.
    Smashing a helmet against someone's bare skull could cause serious damage.

    I never said it was ok, i said football is a violent game and this type of thing is going to happen. Its a violent sport. Maybe we should just get rid of it and start playing soccer.

    Don't be ridiculous. Soccer's for fruits.
    I realize football is intense. It's it's appeal.
    But it shouldn't be thunderdome out there
