Students from two rival Texas high schools took their animosity with them when they left the stadium Friday - engaging in a massive food fight when they met up at a Whataburger restaurant.

The 60-second volley of burgers, fries and soda left the diner in San Antonio, Texas, completely trashed.

Appalled school administrators and parents have vowed to punish those responsible.

Fortunately for the students involved, Whataburger, a Texas-based fast food chain, said it would not press charges.
'Campus administrators will review videos to identify students who will face appropriate consequences including suspension from school,' the district said in a statement.

Cell phone video and pictures from the food fight became a nation-wide hit, attracting thousands of comments on Facebook - most of them condemning the poor manners of the high school students

The food fight broke out between students of O'Connor and Brandeis high schools. Brandeis beat O'Connor 12-10 in their annual match-up.

'Clearly the rivalry between select students from these two high schools got out of hand, resulting in a 30-second food fight that required our team to close the dining area for 30 minutes to clean up the mess left behind,' the company told the San Antonio Express-News in a statement.

School administrators have determined it was fans - not football players, cheerleaders or the band - who were involved in the fast food brawl.

San Antonio Independent School District board president Ed Garza, the former mayor, said he was left 'speechless' by the videos, calling it 'an unfortunate display.'

'It shouldn't matter whether we have social media or not to capture this, because students should remember who or what they represent when they act in public or even private — or what's left of that nowadays,' Northside School Board Bobby Blount told the Express-News.
