A high school football coach in Texas is in recovery after he was shockingly ganged up on and beaten by a group of middle schoolers who were told to stop messing about on dirt bikes.
The disturbing attack was caught on video and shows students chasing down the coach, who works at Langham Creek High School near Houston.
Students then begin to punch the coach, who has not yet been identified, and he falls to the ground.
According to some students, the coach was responding to a bunch of the kids making noise on their dirt bikes.
‘I heard there were kids doing donuts and stuff, causing a ruckus with their dirt bikes,’ Logan Wisniewski said. ‘The coach wasn’t happy with it. He asked them politely to stop doing that. The kids weren’t having that, so they decided to jump him.’

The incident took place at Langham Creek High School near Houston
A school shooting threat was allegedly posted on social media after the coach was attacked.
A spokesperson for the district wouldn’t reveal how the coach is doing, but people familiar say he’s recovering.
‘I was shocked,’ student Xavier Houston said. ‘I kind of didn’t want to go to school today. I was really trying to see if I could go home.’
Principal Jose Martinez sent a letter to parents.
‘Our administrative team is aware of a video circulating that involves several Aragon Middle School students in an incident at Langham Creek High on Thursday, February 10th,’ he wrote.

‘We worked collaboratively with the Aragon administration and the CFISD police department to complete a thorough investigation, and the juvenile suspects were identified and taken into custody,’ Martinez added.
‘To preserve the integrity of the investigation, please refrain from engaging in discussions surrounding the incident with students and community members. The incident that took place is extremely unacceptable and will be disciplined according to the CFISD Student Code of Conduct.’
Martinez also addressed the alleged school shooting threat on social media, saying that the school and local police were aware.
‘Remind your students that any information regarding school safety should be shared with administrators immediately,’ he said. ‘We continue to work diligently to maintain a safe school environment for every student and staff member. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.’
