I am familiar with this case because my nephew is in Texas 4A and was just bumped out of the playoffs last week. I am also familiar with Johnathon Gray. The kid is a beast. He will be in the backfield for Texas next year along with Malcolm Brown who is also a beast.

As far as this ruling goes. It states in the rules specifically that high stepping (along with a few other gestures like pointing to yourself or the sky) while going into the end zone is a penalty and you will lose the TD.

The rule is not new, but the part about losing the TD is new this year in Texas HS football and has been getting a lot of coverage.

The reason he was ejected from the game is because he received 2 Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalties which comes with an automatic ejection. Both of them we from TD runs.

My nephew's team came within 2 games of playing this kid. They were really excited about the possibility of playing him.
