Brevard Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Rendell has made the decision to permit Viera High School Football to resume competition this week, with a game scheduled for this Friday against Satellite High.
This choice follows a penalty imposed last week in response to the troubling hazing/assault incident that was captured on video within the football locker room. The team was penalized by missing two practices and one game.
According to Dr. Rendell, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office has concluded its investigation into the incident, though it remains uncertain if any criminal charges have been filed or will be in the future.
In the previous week, Viera High School did not participate in their scheduled season opener against South Fork High. To avoid a forfeit, Viera entered into negotiations with South Fork and agreed to reimburse them for the equivalent of a full ticket receipt’s worth of lost sales due to the game cancellation. There is potential for the game to be rescheduled.
