BUFFALO, N.Y. (WJTV) – Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly was restrained after running onto the field during his younger brother’s high school football game in Buffalo, New York on Friday night.
Tom Martin of our CBS affiliate, WIVB-TV in Buffalo, reports the Rebel senior ran onto the field after Kelly’s younger brother, Casey, was hit late out of bounds. A brawl broke out after the play in the second quarter. He was then restrained after going on the field. The video of the brawl, including Kelly being restrained toward the end, can be seen above.
The video does not show Kelly throwing any punches or hitting anyone. Martin reports the head coach at St. Joseph’s said the Ole Miss signal caller did not join the pushing or shoving either.
The game, played between Bishop Timon and St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute, was suspended after the brawl. WIVB reports Buffalo police have not made any arrests and no injuries have been reported at this time.
Kelly has thrown for 1,596 yards with 13 touchdowns and four interceptions this season. Head coach Hugh Freeze tweeted out a response Friday night to the incident.
No. 14 Ole Miss is on bye this week. The Rebels return to action on Oct. 15 with a road trip to No. 16 Arkansas.
