Dear Liverpool CSD Community:
On Friday evening, the Liverpool High School versus Cicero-North Syracuse Varsity Football Game had to be stopped in the fourth quarter after a very physical game resulted in some frustration and bad decisions for both teams. The reason behind the stoppage was to keep the situation from escalating and resulting in more injuries like the one suffered by our quarterback earlier in the game.
What happened on Friday was unacceptable for both teams. The actions of some LHS team members do not represent the guiding principles of the Liverpool Central School District Athletic Department, which includes promoting character development, leadership qualities and sportsmanship in all of our student-athletes.
We are working with the athletic administration, coaching staff and team leaders to respond appropriately and deal responsibly with individuals who don't hold our values at the core of participating in interscholastic athletics.
My hope is that all Liverpool student-athletes and parents will remember this incident, and continue to remind each other of the importance of good sportsmanship.
Dr. Mark F. Potter
Superintendent of Schools
