Pasco athlete Trey Dudley-Giles could face a one-game suspension after being ejected from Friday's 45-0 win over Zephyrhills.
Dudley-Giles, a Division-I recruit, drew two unsportsmanlike conduct flags. The first was for taunting, according to the FHSAA. Dudley-Giles went to the opposing sidelines, and it appeared as if he were trying to help a teammate who was pushed out of bounds on the play.
Officials flagged him again in the fourth quarter for celebrating on his way into the end zone on a punt return. That score was called back because of a different penalty.
The FHSAA has initially given Dudley-Giles a Level-1, one-game suspension, according to a spokesman. Pasco is appealing the decision, so the ruling is not final. If the suspension is upheld, Dudley-Giles would miss the Pirates' playoff opener against Alachua Sante Fe.
Dudley-Giles is one of the North Suncoast's leaders with 20 touchdowns. He has 13 touchdown receptions and almost 700 receiving yards.
The 6-foot, 190-pound receiver, has college offers from Rutgers, East Carolina and Ball State, among others.
