Report: Five DeMatha Football Players Cut After Alleged Prostitute Fling

The incident happened at a team hotel after season opening road game in North Carolina, The Washington Post reports.

The DeMatha Catholic High School Football team has cut five of its players after they allegedly snuck three prostitutes into their hotel room following last week's season opening rout of Hillside High School in North Carolina, according to The Washington Post. 

The Washington Post's Paul Tenorio reported the story late Thursday evening and is relying on information provided by two anonymous sources close to the team. The paper did not name any of the five players involved in the incident, citing their ages.

School officials declined to go into detail on the incident. Head football coach Elijah Brooks and Principal Dan McMahon both told the Post that they would not be commenting. 

"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." - The Washington Post: DeMatha Players Removed From Program After Incident Involving Prostitutes

The Washington Post reports two of the students involved have withdrawn from the private school. School officials have recommended another two be expelled. The fifth student will have his fate decided at a Friday morning disciplinary hearing.

Having sent my son to DeMatha back in the late 80's (and yes he did play football). I will tell you that most of the parents are not wealthy - we sacrificed because Prince George, Maryland public school system did not leave us with any other options. I am a proud parent of a gradiate student that went on to graduate from James Madison and only lakes about 16 credits in a Master's in Math. To mw, the sacrifice was minor part of the price that parents cjhose to pay to give their chuldren a better opportunity to improve life

%Jerry - some better life. I doubt that the coach and escorts were innocent bystanders in any of this. Like you siad - 'a private school' with private standards.

You can take the boy out of the PG County, but you can't take the PG County out of the boy. It's an embarrassment to all those who attended Dematha Catholic High School. Dematha needs to do a better job of screening it's student athelets.

It's pretty bad but kids do horrible stuff all the time. At least it's not a Columbine incident. The only people actually harmed in this scandal were the kids actually involved and their families, and most of the harm actually done is from the punishment not the crime.
