Two players from Ellender and South Terrebonne high schools were suspended from Friday night's football game after a video surfaced on the social media app Snapchat, showing students saying racial slurs including the n-word.
It is unclear whether the students will be suspended from any games in the future or from school.
"We have to investigate first. We’re not going to jump to conclusions yet," McCormick said.
Terrebonne Parish school Superintendent Philip Martin said he was not aware of the situation before speaking with the Houma Courier and Daily Comet.
"I'm mortified, horrified and disappointed if our kids are involved with that. That is just not acceptable. I was hoping we’d gone beyond that point but I guess some people haven't and we need to address that," Martin said.
When school resumes Monday, Martin said he plans to look into the situation.
Ellender won 69-43 for its first victory over South Terrebonne since 1996.
