During at least two football games in North Alabama on Friday, so-called "disruptions" delayed the on-the-field activities.

In the Hazel Green-Sparkman match-up at Sparkman High School in Harvest, near Huntsville, the game was suspended due to what the Madison County School System called a "major disruption."

According to a report from Huntsville television's WHNT, the Madison County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) said the disruption consisted of students rushing the field.

"There was no fight at Sparkman High School," MCSO spokesman Brent Patterson said to WHNT. "No gun was found at the school and there were no injuries at the school."

Fifty miles south in Fairview near Cullman, an altercation erupted into a brawl during the Fairview-Columbia high school game.

Christopher Greer, the play-by-play commentator for Fairview on Cullman radio's Live 95.5 FM, told 1819 News it was the "second-worst display" of sportsmanship he had seen throughout his involvement in the sport.

"I did not witness the gun," he said about the speculation the display of a gun might have initiated the altercation. "It was on the far side of the field. But I was told that as well. The fight ended with one person taken to the hospital and one person arrested. I have been involved with this sport since I was 8. I played through college, currently coach in Arab, JV team, and have done play-by-play for five years.

"This was the second-worst display of sportsmanship I've seen in 41 years," Greer added.
