On going feud about pink cleats

Posted: Updated:

MENDENHALL, MS (WLBT)-  A Mendenhall High School football player was not allowed to suit up in Friday night's game.

It's part of a continuing dispute over his decision to wear pink cleats. Coy Sheppard had sued the school after he was kicked off the team for wearing the cleats.

The school and Sheppard's attorney reached a settlement in which he was supposed to join the team for Friday's game.

Now attorney Oliver Diaz says he is considering an amended lawsuit seeking additional damages. The school district's attorney would not comment.
