Millard South falls as players are sidelined for conduct violations

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- The fate of 11 Millard South football players remains in limbo after a night on the sidelines for a code of conduct violation.

The players were pulled from Friday’s game against Millard West.

School district officials say the conduct violations happened at a school pep rally.

Millard South Sophomore Luke Nissen said, “There were a bunch seniors dancing with some cheerleaders and towards the end of that pep rally the senior football players, like, ripped some shirts off and they had some tank tops underneath with a few letters that said F-M-W.” He said, “It was a bad word towards Millard West. It was a pretty offensive word toward Millard West.”

A District spokesperson tells WOWT 6 News that they take their code of conduct very seriously. It’s not yet known if the players will return to the team next week.

Millard West won Friday's game 48 - 7.
