 Many Texas High School football players were hospitalized after they all were forced by their coach to perform up to 400 push-ups in an hour as punishment, according to local reports of the Authorities.

Rockwall-Heath High School head of the football coach ''John Harrell'' is now on leave after all this happen, while a 3rd party conducts an investigation against him, it was said by the school in a letter to parents, according to Dallas’ Fox station. 

The alleged incident happened on Friday 13 Jan 2023 during an eighth-period athletic class at the elite public school just outside Dallas.

One mother of a student claims her son was forced to do 3 hundred to 4 hundred push-ups with no water breaks, reported by Dallas Morning News, but she did not want to be identified for fear of retaliation.

Her son was hospitalized after this incident and diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis, which can cause his kidney damage or failure, the paper reported.

Approximately there are 8 students who were  hospitalized after the extreme workout, according to the paper.

The school learned about what happened Monday and took as soon as possible action, it was explained by officials in the letter to parents.

“Please know the district immediately implemented measures to address the situation and provide support for our students who were forced as a punishment for 400 Pushups.

“The district is also taking interim action, including but not limited to, placing Coach Harrell on administrative leave while the investigation is pending and notifying appropriate outside agencies. campus Personnel and District administrators  have been in contact with the families who were effected and with the student-athletes,” the letter read, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Harrell has been part of the school’s program since 2019 and has been the head football coach at Rockwall-Heath for a year. 

He’s also coached at other schools in north Texas. 

Now everyone is looking for the Justice.
