Football Prostitute Scandal Roils Catholic DeMatha

Some players on DeMatha Catholic High School's powerhouse football team  aren't letting not being starters slow them down. The Washington Post reports that five players who aren't on the team's starting lineup have been disciplined after allegedly sneaking prostitutes into their room after a game in North Carolina last Friday.

According to the Post, the students waited until chaperones stopped checking rooms to smuggle in three prostitutes they found through a website. Two of the students have already left the school.

All of the players are minors, according to the Post, so there could be statutory rape issues involved. That makes it even harder to buy DeMatha principal Dan McMahon's rosy take on the story:

“I can’t comment on anything except to say when people are on field trips they are exceptionally chaperoned,” McMahon said. “On this trip there was full coverage by supervisors and we are extremely pleased with the way we monitor kids and keep everybody safe.”

    Okay, I'll say it, the priests were just mad that the hookers got to the boys first. The church is a hideout for pedophiles.

  • Typical DC BS

    Principal should have just kept his mouth shut.

    Excuse me, but Dr. McMahon is an exceptional principal and educator. DeMatha is one of the finest academic institutions around, the best music program on the East Coast, and one of the finest athletic programs in the country. I've gone on school trips before and I can tell you that they are indeed exceptionally well chaperoned. This incident occurred at 5am and the last checks were at 430am. The school has handled this situation with grace and class. Any suggestion otherwise is just bogus. What are the coaches and parents supposed to do, not sleep? How dare you try to smear a good man's name and tarnish the reputation of a school that has been built on the success and hard work of thousands of young gentlemen. Joe, you are a sick person. Fr. Damian Anuszewski and Fr. James Day are some of nicest people you will ever meet and would never harm anyone. That just shows how much class you have. You should be ashamed of yourself. Also, why do you people even bother to report the news if you don't know what you're talking about? How about you try to get both sides of the story before reporting worthless crap like this...OneDeMatha

    This is what happens when you treat student-athletes as demigods.

    So the timeline is the excuse for the lapse of chaperoning? How did everyone find out and verify that it was true? There's something for the class reunion archives.
