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The Washington Post reports two of the students involved have withdrawn from the private school.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.
