(WJLA) - A parent of a Howard County high school football player is suing a coach of an opposing school's team after he allegedly broke the player's wrist during an on-field fight.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Shane Snyder, whose son Jake is the quarterback at Mt. Hebron High School in Ellicott City, is suing an assistant coach from Centennial High School on allegations that he violently shoved Jake to the ground during an altercation, causing a fractured wrist.

A fight broke out between Mt. Hebron and Centennial after the first quarter of their Sept. 21 game, the Sun reports, during which Snyder alleges Centennial assistant coach Matt Winger pushed his son.

Winger tells the Sun that he remembers attempting to break up the fight, but he says he never came into contact with Snyder.
