At least 17 people were injured and one man was stabbed while watching the Indiana-Michigan State game at Cass Tech High School football field in Detroit on Thanksgiving night in 2017.
The victim suffered life-threatening injuries and will require a large heart surgery to repair a large hole in his heart, according to Fox 2 in Detroit.
Two boys, both under 16, were charged as adults with multiple felonies, Fox 2 reported.
A state audit revealed widespread allegations of physical and verbal abuse of Cass Tech students by more than one football coach.

“We were happy that it didn’t go any further,” DA Kym Worthy said of the incident. “At first I thought there would be more injuries, but thank God it didn’t.”
Worthy said the injury victim survived and was in stable condition with the operating physicians in the intensive care unit.
“He’s doing great,” Worthy said. “I’m very happy. It could have been a lot worse. The fact that he’s alive. It’s a miracle, really.”
