A 15-year-old high school student is being disciplined after quoting Gus Johnson during a middle school football game. 

The Ohio high schooler described a player as having "getting-away-from-the-cops speed," a quote that caused a stir when Johnson used it in initially in 2009 to describe a Chris Johnson run. The ball-carrier being described in high schooler's game was Haitian. 

The student's punishment was not revealed.
