Court documents allege two teenagers, 17-year-old Ayden Holland and 18-year-old Logan Huber, lured Cole out of the party by telling him his truck had been hit. Then, 17-year-old Reid Mitchell allegedly punched Cole in the face, smashed him into concrete and threw three or four stiff elbows, according to a witness. All three teenagers have been charged with aggravated assault.
The affidavit Mitchell told police there had been a build-up of animosity about the victim’s “perceived behavior toward some of their female acquaintances.”
The new lawsuit names not only the accused teenagers but also their parents, accusing the adults of negligence and that they knew or should have known about the attack plan. The lawsuit also alleges that one parent gave the students, all of whom were minors, alcohol.
The lawsuit also claims that one of the students sent a picture of Cole to his assailant to “start the scheme.”
Cole was a senior and played as a general receiver for his school. But according to the lawsuit, he may never play high school again or continue playing college football after the attack.
“Sadly, I think it’s a long shot for him to be able to play again, it’s one of his biggest passions,” Cory said in December.
