Former Hoover Head Football Coach Rush Propst Suspended for Headbutting Player

Moultrie, GA – Former Hoover Bucs head football coach Rush Propst has been suspended for a year from his position as head coach at Georgia’s Colquitt County High School.

The suspension stems from an altercation Propst had with a player during the Packers state semifinal game last season. Television cameras captured Propst headbutting kicker Louis Martinez in the helmet bloodying his forehead.

Colquitt County won the match-up against Mill Creek High 52-31 in route to a 2015 Georgia class AAAAAA title, Propst’s second consecutive state championship with the Packers.

Propst lead Hoover High School to 5 AHSAA class 6A championships during his tenure as head coach of the Bucs from 1999-2007.

Propst, who is currently coaching his team in a 7-on-7 tournament in Atlanta plans to appeal the Georgia Professional Standards Commission’s suspension ruling.
