Brawl At Alcorn State Leads To Arrest Of 11 Football Players

With the spring semester almost complete, most students would be looking forward to good weather, finishing up the year strong and heading out for summer break.

But just when students at Alcorn St. thought that would be case, a massive brawl erupted at the school’s cafeteria on April 10th, resulting in destruction of school property and, recently, the arrest of 11 school football players. According to Claiborne County Sheriff Frank Davis, more arrests were likely to be made today.

The names of the players arrested and charged with misdemeanors so far are: sophomore defensive back Leishaun Ealey, sophomore defensive back Deago Sama, freshman defensive back Taurence Wilson, freshman defensive back Javen Morrison, junior defensive back Daniel Franklin, sophomore linebacker Terry Whittington, sophomore linebacker Trae Ferrell, freshman defensive lineman Kwanzi Jackson, sophomore defensive back Quintin Smith, junior defensive end Michael Brooks and junior defensive back Jalen Thomas.

Head coach Fred McNair has not issued a statement as of yet but the fight was captured on cell phone video and, of course, went viral.
