HS Fall Hazing Season Extends Into October: Seven Football Players Suspended at Alhambra High

Hazings Category LogoIs this hazing, or just a brutal beat down by guys who are supposed to be your teammates?

Police in Northern California are investigating a high school hazing incident in which a group of football players allegedly beat up a 15-year-old teammate in a locker room.  School officials say seven members of the freshman boys’ football team were suspended from Alhambra High School in Martinez last week. The Sept. 29 incident was captured on cell phone video, which was used to identify the perpetrators.
