Steinbrenner head football coach Andres Perez will not be on the sideline with his team Friday when the Warriors (3-5, 2-2) play at Gaither (4-4, 3-1) in a key district game.

Perez was ejected during the fourth quarter last week’s district game against Freedom, which the Warriors won 17-15, and must serve a one-game suspension. Perez received a Level 1 unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and the school is assessed a $100 fine. Perez was also complete a six-hour “Fundamentals of Coaching” course before the end of the suspension.

Perez received two unsportsmanlike penalties during the game, the first with 2:01 remaining in the fourth quarter when he ran onto the field to dispute a call on the field. He received the second penalty at 1:52 for “disrespectfully addressing a game official”.
