GAITHERSBURG, Md. — A Montgomery County football coach is accused of not only hitting another employee, but failing to de-escalate a large brawl between players, according to court documents obtained by WUSA9.  A criminal summons for Travis Hawkins, the head football coach for Northwest High School, said he struck William Gant, the Gaithersburg High School athletic director, in the head and shoulder from the side during a football game between both schools on Friday night. Gant filed the complaint against Hawkins with the District Court of Maryland for Montgomery County on Monday for misdemeanor second degree assault.
