Chad Kelly rushed onto the field in a benches clearing brawl at his brothers high school football game on Friday. Kelly, who is the quarterback for the Ole Miss Rebels and nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, rushed on to the field after his brother began to be stomped by players on the other team.
As both benches cleared, Chad Kelly was restrained and kept away from any players on the opposing team.
Coach Freeze continued, “From the version I’ve heard, he didn’t do anything to anybody. They were pulling him back because he gets emotional. I probably would too if that were my family.”
Chad Kelly has stated that he wishes he would have “done it differently.” He stated he wished he wouldn’t have done it, but added “I’m sure any of us, if we saw a family member out there in need of help, we would’ve come to the rescue too.”
No punishment is expected for Kelly when he arrives in Mississippi and rejoins the team.
Chad Kelly is in his second year with Ole Miss after having played for Clemson, and East Mississippi Community College which was featured on the Netflix Original Series “Last Chance U.”
Ole Miss plays Arkansas in another SEC matchup next week.
