The teen who says he was attacked at Franklin High Tuesday, claims that he continues to be threatened by his football teammates.
Thursday the school's football coach made one of his players leave practice because of it.
Cesar Carreon says he has been enduring threats since going to the media after another football player allegedly punched him in the face.
Now, Carreon says he is being forced off the football team.
"One of the coaches tells me, you should go ahead and go home. Meanwhile in the weight room, where I was at, they were having a team meeting and aren't I part of the team."> says Carreon.
Carreon is a junior trying to make the varsity football team at Franklin. He finds himself on the outside looking in ever since he was allegedly assaulted by one of the team's star players.
Logan Mansfield, the team's all-district lineman, was arrested and charged with assault causing bodily injury Wednesday after police say he beat up Carreon in front of other players.
When asked why Carreon was kicked out of practice, head football coach Darren Walker differed all comments to the District Spokesperson who is out of town.
Carreon declined the District's offer to change schools Thursday.
