The attorney for Texas football official Robert Watts, who was hit by two players from John Jay High in San Antonio, told the “TODAY” that the attack was a “heinous crime.”

“This wasn’t passion turning into violence, this was premeditated crime,” attorney Alan Goldberger said.

The school district, the UIL and Marble Falls police are all investigating the incident. The UIL has scheduled an emergency hearing for Wednesday.
