What the Foul?
LOS ANGELES — La Canada High School has released a video from a football match against the Bishop Mora Salesian Mustangs that allegedly shows a Salesian player smearing Icy Hot on the face of La Canada player Angel Salazar.
The Mustangs were leading the Spartans 14-0 late in the third quarter when one player decided to rub it in — literally. The culprit appeared to have been No. 16 Rayme Johnson, who reached under Salazar's helmet to deliver an unwelcome dose of muscle ointment. Salazar ran to the ref as he pointed to the cream on his face. He then ran to his sideline in need of relief.
The game was put on hold while the refs investigated. The Valley Sun reports that Johnson's pants had a white substance on them and that he was seen taking off his gloves and washing his hands. The refs weren't able to prove that any wrongdoing took place, so the game resumed after a few minutes.
The refs said they planned to report the incident to the California Interscholastic Federation. Johnson happens to be a four-star recruit who has already committed to UCLA.
