Four Elk River High School football players will be kicked off the varsity team for this season for their roles in hazing incidents early last week, the Elk River school board ruled at a special meeting Sunday night.
Three other players will be suspended for four games, and another two will have to sit out one game, according to the district’s superintendent. There are about 50 players on the varsity squad.
After meeting for nearly two hours in closed session, board members decided to briefly open their meeting to take action against the players. The board later voted to reinstate seven coaches from paid administrative leave and to keep five other coaches on leave pending final outcome of the district’s investigation this week.
