ORLANDO, Fla. (WESH) – Just as football fans were ready to cheer from the stands Thursday night, a social media post prompted the cancellation of games at Edgewater High School.

Edgewater Football’s Facebook page sent out an update saying the game was canceled earlier in the day “per Bishop Moore [High School] social media post.”

Officials say the message was “inappropriate” and was made before freshman and junior high football games between the teams.

The schools did not specify what the social media post was about.

“That’s why you’re disappointed because these are two schools on the same block and they’re probably friends — the students are probably friends,” said parent Katy Ann White.

White has a 14-year-old son who is on Edgewater’s junior varsity soccer team. She was getting off work Thursday afternoon and was excited to see her son play until she got a voicemail from the principal at Edgewater.

Principal Heather Kreider’s voicemail said, in part, “Bishop Moore has decided to cancel today’s freshman and junior varsity football games. Please know that the safety of all students is always my top priority.”

Bishop Moore said in a Facebook post that school officials and local law enforcement are looking into the social media post.

“It’s the first game of the season and I wanted to see my son play, so it was disappointing,” White said. “As parents, teachers and coaches we have to take everything seriously these days.”

Another team was just as sad because they couldn’t cheer on the players on the football field.

“We were devastated that our last varsity girls game was canceled due to weather and then the game was canceled,” Edgewater cheerleader Da’Miyah Jones said. “It was like an instant.”

Members of the Edgewater cheerleading team say they’ve been training for this night all summer.

“We were really excited because this was going to be our first game as freshmen,” Edgewater cheerleader Sapphire Maros said. “Our coach broke the news to us as soon as we finished cheering, and we were all very disappointed because everyone was so excited because we’ve been waiting for this for a while.”

“Hopefully, the next game doesn’t cancel this one out,” Edgewater cheerleader Ciara Cerrud said.

Both high schools say Friday’s football game between their teams will go on as scheduled.
