Pasco senior DB Damien Wilson suspended one game by FHSAA

Pasco will be down a senior defensive back as the Florida High School Athletic Association suspended the Pirates’ Damien Wilson for this Friday’s game.

Wilson was ejected from last Friday’s 56-17 win over 9-Mile War rival Zephyrhills. Following a offensive play by the Bulldogs (5-4, 5-2 Class 5A-District 6), an on the field scuffle ensued and Wilson was penalized with two unsportsmanlike taunting personal fouls and then removed from the game. FHSAA deemed it a level 1 unsportsmanlike conduct, which carries a one-game suspension.

The lone upside to this suspension is that Wilson will miss the Pirates regular-season finale Friday when the Pirates host Delray Beach Village Academy (4-5) and be able to return for Pasco’s first-round playoff game hosting Citra North Marion (5-4) on Nov. 16.

Wilson has been part of a really good Pasco (9-0, 7-0) defense that has only allowed 44 points this season.
