Board member Osvaldo Avila during the meeting on Tuesday, July 13, 2021, at the Salem-Keizer Public Schools board meeting in Salem.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools board member Osvaldo Avila on Tuesday issued an apology for his actions at a high school football game in October.

Avila, who was supporting his son at a West Salem vs. Sheldon football game in Eugene, was investigated by the district after he put his hand on the back of a referee’s head because of his frustration with a call, according to a third-party investigative report commissioned by the district.

Descriptions of the incident

District administrators received a complaint on Oct. 26 about Avila reportedly violating the Oregon School Activities Association’s spectator conduct rules.

According to the complaint, Lane County Football Officials Association Commissioner Mike Whitty said at the end of the West Salem vs. Sheldon High School junior varsity game that day the West Salem fans “got overly excited about a call by the officials.”
