The mother of Fritz Moncion, the Linden, NJ high school football player who took the helmet of an opponent and hit him with it, spoke out on her son’s behalf and said the vicious hit, which caused ten stitches, was without intention and he is “very, very sorry” and is calling his punishment of being suspended from school, kicked off the team and potential criminal charges too severe.
“He’s a great kid. He really didn’t intentionally do this. He’s very hurt. He’s crying… To keep him off the team, I don’t think that is the answer,” MyCentralJersey.com reports Moncion’s mom said.
She added, “He’s going to apologize to the parents, to the school, to Linden, to the coaches formally.”
