“Power Gobbling” Hazing Update: Outside Investigator Hired to Look Into Great Falls High’s Lack of Action

Last week we introduced you to a new hazing fad, “power gobbling” which resulted in Great Falls High School offensive lineman Alex Botina-Roehm, 18, being charged with rape and two counts of sexual assault.

HS Football Coach Accused of Giving Players Password to Porn Site to “Create Camaraderie”
