Celebrating Fans Trample High School Athlete

POSTED: 11:10 a.m. EST February 9, 2004
TUCSON, Ariz. -- A high school basketball player in Tucson is hospitalized after reportedly suffering a stroke when he was trampled on court by celebrating fans.

Joe Kay, 18, was swarmed when about 200 fans rushed the court after Tucson High School beat Salpointe Catholic Friday night.

Kay is in serious condition. His coach said he has no movement on the right side of his body. The teen's mother said doctors think his injuries could be permanent.

Kay ignited the crowd in the closing minutes of the game when he scored on a two-handed slam dunk and was surrounded by fans after the buzzer.

Tucson High Athletic Director Herman House is trying to obtain a copy of the game film to determine what happened.

Kay has a 4.0 grade point average and is a starter on Tucson's basketball and volleyball teams. The senior also had a volleyball scholarship to play for Stanford. education/2832767/detail.html

I can't think of any other refs participating in anything like this. Given what refs earn, I agree that I can't believe more of this hasn't happened. The only other pro sport betting scandals I can think of are in baseball:
