The University Interscholastic League unanimously agreed on Monday to suspend Edinburg High School defensive lineman Emmanuel Duron from all University Interscholastic League events for the remainder of his senior academic year, according to The Monitor in McAllen, Texas.

Duron’s coach, JJ Leija, has been placed on probation for one year, beginning in the 2021-22 academic year. Furthermore, Edinburg High’s athletic programmes will be placed on probation starting immediately and ending at the end of the 2022-23 school year.

“I’d like to express my condolences to my coaches, my family, and the UIL,” Duron said on Monday.

Duron is already facing assault charges from an incident on Dec. 3 in which he pushed a referee to the ground after the official was ejected from a District 31-6A zone play-in game against Pharr-San Juan-Alamo High.

During an arraignment, the 18-year-old was charged with class A assault and placed into the Hidalgo County jail before posting a $10,000 bond.

Duron was suspended from school for three days, according to the San Antonio Express-News, and he will attend weekly counselling sessions as part of a behavioural intervention plan.

This wasn’t Duron’s first run-in with the law.

Duron slapped a red card out of an official’s hand and shoved the official’s chest with both hands before being taken off the field by coaches during a soccer match against Edinburg Vela during the 2019-20 academic year.

Duron has been barred from playing soccer for the rest of the 2019-20 season.
