Judge: HS Football Suspension Stands

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) -- A judge has denied a Marshalltown teenager's request to temporarily block a three-game football suspension that was imposed as punishment for the display of what administrators called a white power sign.
   The Marshalltown Times-Republican reports (http://bit.ly/1sf3dbv) District Court Judge Steven Oeth on Tuesday denied the temporary injunction request by 17-year-old Blair Van Staalduine.
   Administrators suspended Van Staalduine after discovering a photo of him making a "W" sign with his hands. The teen argued the sign only reflected his white clothing, but Activity Director Craig Huegel testified Van Staalduine and other students involved acknowledged it signified white power.
   Van Staalduine's father, Jerry Van Staalduine, testified that missing three games could hurt his son's chance of getting a college scholarship.
   Oeth stated that players often miss games and still receive scholarships.
