CAMDEN CO., GA - In Texas, we take our football seriously. But students at a high school in south Georgia may have a football problem.

A parent came forward after seeing a video posted to a player's Snapchat account.

She says the video shows members of the JV team giving one of their teammate's a violent beating after he wore the wrong colored shirt to a football game. The mom the student was beat up as retaliation for sitting on the opposing side at a game and wearing the other team's colors to support his girlfriend, who is a cheerleader at the other school.

The superintendent of the district says four students were punished for the incident and police are also investigating. But the parent says there's a bigger problem, that football players are allowed to behave without consequences.
