(West Point-AP) -- A dispute over whether or not West Point Junior High School kids can wear their football jerseys to school is resolved for now.

School administrators and students met yesterday.

They decided students will not be allowed to wear their football jerseys on Fridays until they can come together as a school first.

The principal at the school suggested a ban on the football jerseys because of incidents of pushing, shoving and blocking between students who wore them.

Students are allowed to wear the schools colors this Friday, but no jerseys.

If they wear their jerseys, coaches say they'll be benched for two games.

The principal says other students look up to the football players and don't want any of the other students to be afraid of them.
