WEST POINT, Utah (AP) -- As long as they behave, West Point Junior High School students will be allowed to resume wearing their old football jerseys again beginning next week.

Members of the Wasatch Football League who attend the new junior high met with administrators and coaches Wednesday.

"We need to come together as a school first, then you'll be allowed to wear jerseys after that point," said Chad Evans, a coach and a parent.

Students were asked to wear the school's T-shirts or the school's colors Friday and leave their recreational football jerseys at home.

If students pull together, then they will be allowed to wear the jerseys the rest of the year, Principal Jane Muna said.

Muna earlier had talked of banning the jerseys because of incidents of jersey-wearers pushing, shoving and blocking other students in the hallways of the new school.
