UPDATE: Ensworth will be playing their state titled game without head coach Ricky Bowers. The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association made the announcement today. 

Ensworth head coach Ricky Bowers was ejected following his team's 21-12 victory over Brentwood Academy Friday night.  A late hit with :02 seconds to go led to pushing and shoving between the two teams.  The officials called the game at that point, and Bowers got into a heated discussion with the head official moments later.  Bowers was then ejected, with the official telling him he would not be coaching in the Tigers' next game.  That would be the state title game against MUS in less than two weeks.
