Colquitt County located in south Georgia is a high school football hotbed and sometimes tensions get high because these games are super competitive. Last year Colquitt County High School’s head football coach, Rush Propst, known for his 7 football titles was caught on camera head butting another player during a heated argument.
According to The Moultrie Observer, the Packers (Colquitt) coach received a letter from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission, informing him of an suspension for making contact with a player.

Here’s what Rush had to say after the game:
“I’ll tell you what. That was a dad gum intense football game,” Propst said at the time. “That game was not for the weak or the young. That was big boy football right there. You saw a bunch of good football players out on that field tonight. We got ’em and Mill Creek’s got ’em, too.”
The head-butt gained a lot of attention shortly after the game.
“Yeah, I’m fine,” Propst said. “I didn’t have to have a stitch. It wasn’t (as bad as it) looked. Sometimes you have to get your players going, and I think you all realize I’m pretty passionate about what I do. I didn’t think our intensity level was where it needed to be.
According to the report, Propst was not reprimanded by either the Colquitt County High School administration or by the Georgia High School Association.
