Schulenburg suspends players, forfeits game

SCHULENBURG -- Schulenburg coach Don Wild suspended 15 of the Shorthorns' 23 varsity players Friday for rules violations and forfeited the non-district game against Smithville.

Wild declined to specify the nature of the violations but said the players broke team training policies. The suspensions are for one game.

The forfeits left just five healthy players on the varsity roster. Wild said he elected not to use junior varsity players against Smithville because of safety concerns and because he couldn't assemble a "varsity-quality team" without the suspended players.
