My name is Vanndyra Jason Srouy, and I was a senior playing on the Crawford high school football team in a game here in San Diego, California, in October 2015. On one play in a game against Holtville, I was playing as a wide receiver whose assignment was to block the opposing corner back. On that play, I blocked that player and he ended up falling into the back of the legs of one of the referees. The referee was injured on the play. The referee sued me and the San Diego Unified School District. I did not find out about the ref’s claim and the lawsuit until months after I graduated. The school district has refused to defend me, even though my coach said that I did nothing wrong. My school’s alumni association said that they could not help, and the local CIF (California Interscholastic Federation) which governs high school sports, also said that they would not help.

I had to get my own attorney after the referee’s attorney filed a Request for Entry of Default against me for $1,000,515. The school district did not notify me of the default, and it was only after bringing a motion by my attorney that the default was set aside. I now have legal costs and fees currently in excess of $50,000. The trial date has now been moved to December 7, 2018.

There is a video of the play (provided after the lawsuit was filed), which unfortunately does not have any sound. Another referee threw a flag on the play claiming that I made a late hit – which I dispute based upon the video. My team was penalized, even though my coach said I did nothing wrong.

I never knew that if someone sued me for something that I did on the football field that the school district would abandon me. It is just not right. Schools should stand by and defend their athletes.

Please help me with the legal fees in this case, which will only increase as we get close to and through the trial. I am sure that any jury is going to find that I did nothing wrong. I had no intent to injure anyone, and had no disagreement with any of the refs during the game. I was just a high school football player, playing on the school team and following the directions of the coaches by completing my assignment on each play. You can look up the case which is called Herlich vs. Srouy et.al., through the San Diego Superior Court's Register of Actions. The lawsuit is case # 37-2016-00032867.
