St. Joe’s – Timon football game suspended after fight


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Former St. Joe’s star and University of Mississippi quarterback Chad Kelly had to be restrained on the field at his brother’s high school football game Friday night.

A fight broke out between Timon and St. Joe’s at Tifft field after Kelly’s brother, Casey, took a late hit. News 4’s Tom Martin was recording the game and captured video of Chad Kelly being pushed back to the sideline after he rushed the field.

According to the Buffalo Police Department, no injuries were reported and no arrests have been made. Because of the fight, the game was suspended during the second quarter.

Nearly two years ago, Kelly was arrested after a bar fight in downtown Buffalo. He is the nephew of Bills hall of famer Jim Kelly.

Timon was leading 2-0 before the game was called. School representatives say there is not a set date for rescheduling the game. Both teams will meet and determine a course of action later. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
