High school athletes these days are bigger, stronger and faster than they were in years past. They’re also willing to take more liberties.
Five students from DeMatha Catholic High School, in Hyattsville, Maryland, have been kicked off the football team for hiring prostitutes while in North Carolina for a road game, according to the Washington Post.
The story in itself isn’t entirely shocking because young men will be young men. But who snitched?
According to the parent, players hired prostitutes from a call service in North Carolina, and some engaged in sexual activities with those prostitutes in a hotel room. According to the two people with knowledge of the situation, the incident occurred at 5 a.m. on Saturday morning after DeMatha’s Friday night game.
The Post is not naming the five players, who are minors, and withholding the name of the parent to protect the identity of the child. The other person with knowledge of the incident spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the situation.
Two players withdrew from the school this week, two others have been recommended for expulsion pending appeal and a fifth faces a disciplinary hearing on Friday morning, according to both people familiar with the aftermath.
