Winston-Salem State's quarterback says he was punched, stomped and kicked by as many as six Virginia State players during a fight at last week's CIAA championship luncheon.
Quarterback Rudy Johnson appeared at a news conference Monday at his school with cuts above and below his blackened right eye. He says he also had a headache the day of the incident, and has a sore back and sore ribs.
Virginia State football coach Latrell Scott says there was a "rush to judgment" after the fight left Johnson injured and caused Saturday's game to be canceled.
Trojans running back Lamont Daniel Britt has been charged with misdemeanor assault inflicting serious injury in the fight involving Johnson.
Scott says four Trojans players were questioned, but Britt is the only player charged.
