It’s been nearly six years since BadJocks first stunned the sports world with photos from the Northwestern Women’s Soccer Team show players being hazed wearing blindfolds, with their hands behind their backs. Parents and educators were shocked, investigations were launched and now, in 2012, we can report progress: the same crap is now being done at the high school level.
At Joliet West High School, not far from Northwestern’s Evanston, IL campus, a new scandal erupted over the weekend as photos from a hotel room initiation–with an adult chaperone or coach watching–emerged on Facebook. In one image, a blindfolded member of the team has her hands bound and is plastic-wrapped to a chair, while someone shoves a bar of soap in her mouth. Another appears to fight off a can a whipped topping being shoved in her mouth with her bound hands. You can just feel the love in the room, can’t you?
As for punishments, the only official statement the school has made says “Please know that we are taking this matter extremely seriously.” Some parents say a few players have been suspended and the coach was not present at the team’s last game, but otherwise everything seemed to be pretty normal.
Video and additional details on this story from CBS 2 in Chicago:
And you thought high school girl’s soccer was boring?
A South Carolina TV news crew was taping a game between Chester High School and Lewisville High School when one of the players, Annette McCullough of LHS, falls to the ground. There was a Chester player running with her, but if you watch the video it’s hard to say there was anything but a little incidental contact. McCullogh didn’t think so and immediately gets up, pulls the Chester player to the ground and starts punching her in the face.
Fortunately, a female coach or parent nearby runs in and separates the two and eventually McCullogh is lead off the field by an official. The local sheriff’s office was called and, as a result, McCullough is being charged with simple assault. No word if the victim was seriously injured in the attack. Watch the video for yourself below!
The bad news is that Bulldog soccer player Carli Shultis is banned from all eateries on campus for the next year. The good news? We found a picture of her in a bikini! That makes it all better doesn’t it?
No, not really.
And it really doesn’t explain why a 19-year-old young woman would shove a $1.06 worth of hash browns down her pants when she had money elsewhere that could easily pay for them. So . . . was it part of a soccer team hazing? A dare of sorts? A way to heat up her cold loins?
No explanation is forthcoming, but Carli is still on the team and doing her own cooking these days. But it does make you wonder what it a kid from Eagles Landing Christian School, who claims her favorite movie is called “Law Abiding Citizen” was doing with hot, steamy fried potatoes in her underwear. Surely a college student could find a better place to hide them?

Adult men have so many options available to them when bored, including but not limited to, drinking alcohol or going to a strip club. So it is a bit baffling as to why 6 grown men, aided by 2 women, decided to dress up in costumes (Power Rangers – really? Is this 1995?) and raid the field of a high school girl’s soccer game in attempt to cure their boredom.
They surrounded the poor goalie in a scene described by the coach as “the craziest thing I’ve seen in a sport event”, one proposed marriage and then were chased off the field. All were later caught in the woods but oddly, no report of alcohol or drugs have been blamed in their lack of judgment.
Savannah Now has the details:
Six men wearing costumes — four Power Rangers, a ninja and a Spider-Man — have been arrested and charged with disrupting or interfering with a girls’ high school soccer game in Cleveland, Ga., authorities said.
Players and coaches said they didn’t know what was going on, and were fearful as the men dashed onto the field and surrounded a goalie during Tuesday’s Gainesville vs. White County game. The men told sheriff’s officials they ran onto the field as a prank and that they were bored, a sheriff’s report stated
Is it really streaking if you’re wearing a Speedo? Probably not, but they can still charge you with disorderly conduct and criminal trespass, especially if you disrupt the game by standing in the middle of the field in that slingshot of a bathing suit, pantyhose over your face and a white cowboy hat, and do a little dance. Heck, in New York City you can make a living doing that as the Naked Cowboy. But in Ohio, they don’t understand that an artist needs to express himself in some non-traditional ways.
Here’s the details from WLWT:
Police said they were called to Monroe High School on Sept. 14 for reports of a possibly nude person running across the field during a Monroe varsity girl’s soccer match. Witnesses said a man ran onto the field wearing pantyhose over his face, a white cowboy hat and a Speedo. They said the man stopped at the 50 yard line and began dancing before running off into a wooded area. Police said their investigation led them to Daughhetee. Officers said Daughhetee admitted to causing the interruption as part of a prank.
