Former Hoover head coach Rush Propst suspended for a year in Georgia


Former Hoover High School football coach, and current Colquitt County head coach, Rush Propst, has been suspended for head-butting a player during the Class AAAAAA semifinal at Mill Creek last season, according to The Moultrie Observer.

Propst received a letter from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission letting him know that he has been suspended for one year because he made contact with a student.

Propst has appealed the suspension and continues to coach his team this summer.

Video of the incident made its way around the internet last December after the Packers went up 21-14 in the second quarter of the game. After head-butting kicker Luis Martinez, Propst can be seen bumping into linebacker Dee Walker, before walking away with blood streaming from a gash on his forehead.

Propst didn’t get in trouble with Colquitt County High School or the GHSA after the incident, but the PSC started it’s own investigation earlier this year and voted on a one-year suspension.
