Five DeMatha Football Players Removed From Program For Hiring Prostitutes, According To Report

Five DeMatha football players have been removed from the program after revelations that they hired prostitutes on a team trip to North Carolina.

DeMatha removed five players from their perennial powerhouse football program after revelations that players hired prostitutes to the team hotel after an out-of-state game in North Carolina. Paul Tenorio of The Washington Post reported Thursday that the incident took place early Saturday morning after the season opener against Hillside.

A parent of one of the five players told Tenorio that the players hired the prostitutes from a North Carolina call service website and that some engaged in sexual activities. The players snuck three prostitutes into the team hotel around 5 a.m. after the final hotel hallway check by the trip's chaperones. There were reportedly 18 adults supervising the team.

DeMatha is a renowned powerhouse in a number of sports. Their high-profile football and basketball teams are consistently among the top-ranked squads in the DC area, if not the nation. While all five have been kicked off the football team, some are still sorting out their status at the Catholic school in Prince George's County. According to Tenorio, two withdrew from the school, two are facing expulsion and one is scheduled for a disciplinary hearing on Friday. Neither Principal Dan McMahon or Coach Elijah Brooks commented on the specific incident to the Post.
