Filed under Sportsno comments

Mason Holland is a senior from from DeSoto County High in Arcadia, Florida who received a technical foul from a referee and instead of showing good sportsmanship Mason Holland throws the ref to the ground.

Mason Holland, 18, has been suspended from school and won’t be allowed to play again for DeSoto County High School .

Holland pushed an opposing player in the face, during the game between rival high schools DeSoto County and Port Charlotte. Referee Jim Hamm called Holland for a technical foul, and Holland responded by pushing Hamm, then picking him up and throwing him to the floor.

The school system has suspended Holland for 10 days, while the Florida State Attorney’s office decides whether or not to file felony charges against him.

If Holland is charged with a felony he will be expelled and placed in an alternative high school.

But Holland told ABC News today, “I am going to school finish school, I’ve already come this far and am not giving up now.”

The game was immediately ended with Holland’s team forfeiting to the other team and ultimately led to the end of Holland’s high school basketball career.

“I’ve coached 40 years and never seen anything close to that,” said Holland’s Coach Joe Sheridan. “I don’t teach this — I teach boys to be men. I apologize for his behavior to the school and the community. That young man will never play again here at DeSoto.”
