Warren County's school superintendent is asking the GBI to investigate how their coach was beaten and badly injured after a Friday night game in Hancock County.
Superintendent Carol Jean Carey says Warren County's team was walking to their locker room when they were surrounded by Hancock players and some of them starting hitting people with their helmets.
She said coach Dave Daniels saw a Hancock player striking one of his, stepped in and asked "What are you doing?"
According to Carey, the player struck Daniels in the head with a helmet, injuring his eye and crushing bones in his face "like cornflakes."
Daniels is now home after undergoing surgery early Saturday at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.
Warren County won the game, 21-2.
Hancock County is on fall break this week; School Supt. Gwenolyn Reeves, high school principal Willie Gibson and athletic director Marcus Morris could not be reached for comment.
