Berkeley Prep linebacker Joe Schiano’s appeal of his six-week suspension was denied Tuesday, Florida High School Athletic Association spokesman Corey Sobers told the Tampa Tribune.
According to an incident report by the FHSAA, Schiano was ejected from the Sept. 28 win against Lennard for using profanity towards a referee, which is considered a ‘Level 2’’ unsportsmanlike conduct, which carries a six-week suspension
The suspension, in effect, ends the rest of Schiano’s season since the ban started the day of the Lennard game and runs through Nov. 9, the date of Berkeley’s final regular-season game.
Schiano, the son of first-year Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano, has 11 tackles and a fumble recovery this season.
Berkeley Prep coach Dominick Ciao has declined to comment further on the incident.
