More High School #Hazing: Teen Arraigned on Hazing Charges After Wrestler Suffers Broken Jaw – Warsaw High School

Another day, another high school wrestler with a broken jaw. Yesterday a high school baseball player was punched so hard he had convulsions and today it’s a high school wrestler who won’t be eating solid food for a while. The incident at New York wrestling powerhouse Warsaw High is a little different, but still stems from the concept that you can’t have just a little bit of hazing. Sorry, jocks…

Another New Hazing Technique: The “Wet Biscuit” – Andover High School

“Just don’t talk about anything and we can fix this.” “You guys look we can fix this, we just need everyone’s help.” If there’s anything worse than high school sports hazings, it’s high school jocks trying to cover their tracks and derail an investigation into what happened. Above are Facebook comments from members of a team accusing of a really disgusting new  hazing technique. Details aren’t real clear, but apparently…

“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. The question we had at the time was: If this happened in September, why wasn’t Botina-Roehm charged until November? Turns out, one of the victims DID report it to school officials when it happened, but then…
