Incident LaFayette High School 9/12/22

September 13, 2022


Dear Families and Staff Members - 


I am writing to inform you about an incident that occurred at LaFayette High School on Monday September 12, 2022.


Two modified football players on our combined football team were involved in an altercation at the conclusion of football practice yesterday. One of the students involved was injured and required medical attention. First responders from LaFayette Ambulance, Tully Ambulance, the New York State Police, and Onondaga County Sheriff's Department responded to the call for assistance. We wish the student who was injured a quick recovery. 


Athletic directors from each of our partner schools have been in communication regarding this incident. School administrators have been in touch with the students involved and their families. 


We look forward to helping our student athletes work through this challenging situation. We are hopeful that this set back at the start of the modified football season will not impede the comradery that we have built in the combined Southern Hills Football program over the past several years. We look forward to more positive interactions among our student athletes and cheering them on as they work together throughout the season.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 315-529-9550 (cell) or
